'The King's Speech' Rules U.K. Box Office
British actor Colin Firth's fellow countrymen have bowed down to his royal turn in "The King's Speech" - the drama has been crowned number one in the U.K. box office chart. The hotly-tipped Oscar favorite, starring Firth as King George VI as he battles to overcome his stammer, grossed $5.25 million in its first three days of release.
Danny Boyle's "127 Hours" was another new entry at two with $3.3 million. "Little Fockers" and "Gulliver's Travels" placed third and fourth, respectively, while Russell Crowe thriller "The Next Three Days" debuted at five with $1.5 million.
Stateside, the first place on the box office is held by "True Grit". The next four spots are secured by "Little Fockers", "Season of the Witch", "Tron Legacy" and "Black Swan" in respective order. "The King's Speech", meanwhile, is sitting at No. 9.
