Animated movie CARS has raced to the top of the UK and Ireland box office chart, sinking nearest rival Pirates Of The Caribbean: DEAD MAN'S CHEST.
The Pixar film, which features the voices of Owen Wilson, Paul Newman and Bonnie Hunt, raked in GBP2.7 million ($4.8 million) last weekend (29-30JUL06), ahead of Pirates' swashbuckling GBP2.6 million ($4.7 million) bounty. Together, the movie pair made more than the rest of the box office top ten put together.
Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston's THE BREAK-UP dropped down a place to number three, while the Man Of Steel could do nothing to stop SUPERMAN RETURNS slipping to four. STORMBREAKER rounds out the UK top five.
