A friendly fish has achieved the near impossible - blasting GOD and THE MATRIX sequel from the top of the movie charts in America.

New Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo has debuted with a staggering $70.6 million (GBP47.1 million), making it the biggest animated opening ever.

Jim Carrey's hit religion spoof comedy Bruce Almighty, which broke Memorial Day weekend records last week (25MAY03), continued its run with another $35.6 million (GBP23.7 million) to claim second place, while the impressive The Italian Job remake kept The Matrix Reloaded out of third spot.

Finding Nemo features the voices of Ellen Degeneres, Albert Brooks and Brad Garrett.
