Action Film 10,000 Bc Roars To Top Of UK Box Office Charts

by | 18 March 2008

Action thriller 10,000 BC has rumbled to the top of the UK box office charts after its opening weekend on release.

The prehistoric epic, from Independence Day director Roland Emmerich, took £1.9 million in its first three days on UK screens to grab the number one spot in UK and Ireland.

Steven Strait stars as tribal hunter D'Leh in the box office hit, forced into action when the beautiful Evolet (Camille Bell) is captured by a band of warlords.

D'Leh and his remote mountain tribe embark on an epic quest to win her back, encountering along the way sabretooth tigers, woolly mammoths and a lost civilization.

Last week's number one movie Vantage Point dropped to second spot while many releases retained a spot in the top five.

Comedy horror The Cottage, starring Andy Serkis, Reese Shearsmith and Jennifer Ellison, was the second highest new entry of the week, taking £303,016 from 260 sites across the UK and Ireland to claim sixth position.

Black comedy In Bruges, starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as assassins stranded in Belgium after a botched hit, climbed four places to seventh, while Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert did not repeat its US chart-topping success, entering the UK charts in ninth.

This week's top ten films at the UK box office are:

1 (-) 10,000 BC - £1,939,658
2 (1) Vantage Point - £936,175
