Jodie Foster is back on top of the US box office after her midair plane drama FLIGHTPLAN beat Tim Burton's latest animated hit to the top of the film charts.

Foster's thriller debuted at number one with a $24.6 million (GBP13.6 million) weekend take, while Burton's Corpse Bride took in a healthy $20.1 million (GBP11.2 million).

Last weekend's (18SEP05) top film Just Like Heaven, starring Reese Witherspoon as a ghost, slipped to number three, while rapper Bow Wow's 1970s flashback disco movie debuted at number four.

The rapper is donating 10 per cent of the film's $8 million (GBP4.4 million) opening weekend take to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
