It was all change at the UK box office this weekend, with three new entries occupying the top three places.

Top of the charts was Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, the sequel to 1980s hit Wall Street, with Michael Douglas reprising his role as Gordon Gekko.

Romantic comedy, Life As We Know It, went in straight at number two.

The film is about two singletons who find themselves bringing up their friends' baby after the child's parents die in a car crash.

The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud was the third highest new entry.

The movie stars teen heart-throb Zac Efron as Charlie, a young man overcome by grief at the death of his younger brother.

The Other Guys slipped from number one to fourth spot, while Ben Affleck's The Town dropped to fifth place from number two.

Mr Nice, starring Rhys Ifans, debuted at number 11 but only opened in just over 100 cinemas.
