Jude Law's new sci-fi action movie Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is flying high after taking the top spot in the new box office chart in America.

The retro-futuristic film, which also features Angelina Jolie and GWYNETH PALTROW, made $16.2 million (GBP9 million) in its opening weekend to beat new baseball comedy MR 3000 to the number one spot.

Last weekend's (12SEP04) top film, Resident Evil: APOCALYPSE, fell to number three with a $9 million (GBP5 million) take.

Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst's new tennis movie Wimbledon opened with a disappointing $7.8 million (GBP4.3 million).
