Simon Pegg's 'Paul' Tops U.K. Box Office
Simon Pegg's new alien comedy "Paul" has proven to be out of this world - after entering the U.K. box office chart at number one. The extra-terrestrial movie knocked animated hit "Gnomeo and Juliet" off the top spot, taking in $8.3 million in its first week of release.
"Gnomeo and Juliet" fell to two after grossing $3.3 million, Colin Firth's royal drama "The King's Speech" came third with takings of $2.6 million and its Oscar rival "True Grit" held steady at four with $2.3 million.
"Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son" rounded out the top five as the second highest new entry, scoring $2.1 million. Justin Bieber's tour documentary "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" entered this week's Top 10 countdown at nine with earnings of $120,000.
