Veteran actor Robert De Niro has proved he's still a major force in cinema - he's atop both the UK and US box office charts in two different films.

Horror movie HIDE AND SEEK - also starring Famke Janssen, Elisabeth Shue and DAKOTA FANNING - has delighted American audiences in its opening weekend (28-30JAN05), taking $22 million (GBP11.6 million) to land the top spot.

Meanwhile, comedy sequel MEET THE FOCKERS shot straight to number one in Britain after just three days on release (28JAN05), taking $7.2 million (GBP3.9 million) to beat relationship drama CLOSER into second place.

Meet The Fockers enjoyed a three-week run at the top of the US chart following its release in America in December (04).
