Simon Pegg - Pegg's Paul Tops U.k. Box Office

SIMON PEGG's new alien comedy PAUL has proved to be out of this world - after entering the U.K. box office chart at number one.
The extra-terrestrial movie knocked animated hit Gnomeo & Juliet off the top spot, taking in $8.3 million (£5.5 million) in its first week of release.
Gnomeo & Juliet fell to two after grossing $3.3 million (£2.2 million), Colin Firth's royal drama The King's Speech came third with takings of $2.6 million (£1.7 million) and its Oscar rival True Grit held steady at four with $2.3 million (£1.5 million).
Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son rounded out the top five as the second highest new entry, scoring $2.1 million (£1.4 million).
Justin Bieber's tour documentary Never Say Never entered this week's Top 10 countdown at nine with earnings of $120,000 (£800,000).
