Box Office Gold For Incredible Hulk After Opening Weekend

by | 18 June 2008

The Incredible Hulk has smashed its way to the top of the UK and Irish box office after its first weekend on release.

With £3.25 million in box office receipts, the Louis Leterrier film pushed last week's number one, Sex and the City, into second place.

Starring Edward Norton and Liv Tyler, the film sees Bruce Banner (Norton) on the run in Brazil and attempting to find a cure for the gamma poisoning that causes his uncontrollable transformations.

But with General Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) and super soldier Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) on his tale, Bruce is unable to avoid the appearance of the beast within as he nears a climactic battle in New York City.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull fell one place to third while the other new entry in the top ten was M Night Shyamalan's new movie The Happening.

Ben Affleck's crime drama Gone Baby Gone dropped out of the top five and What Happens in Vegas... and Iron Man each fell two places.

The top ten films at the UK box office are: (last week's position)

1 The Incredible Hulk - £3.25 million (-)
2 Sex and the City - £1.78 million (1)
3 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - £1.76 million (2)
4 The Happening - £1.63 million (-)
5 Superhero Movie - £516,000 (3)
6 Gone Baby Gone - £246,457 (5)

8 What Happens in Vegas... - £132,744 (6)
9 Iron Man - £128,509 (7)
10 Mongol - £128,386 (9)
