Animated Disney film BOLT has raced to the top of the U.K. box office chart, ousting THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON from the number one slot.
The movie, featuring the voices of John Travolta and Miley Cyrus, scored a successful opening weekend after it hit cinemas on Friday (13Feb09), garnering $4.06 million (£2.8 million) in its first three days.
The 2D version comes a week after the 3D movie scored a limited release across the U.K.
Slumdog Millionaire, fresh from success at the recent BAFTA awards, rose one place to number two, taking its total to $29 million (£20 million) from its five-week run.
Romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You fell one place to third.
Last week's most popular film, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, dropped three places to number four in its second week of release, while the top five is rounded out by Hotel for Dogs, which took $2.18 million ( £1.5 million) in its first week.
