Titanic 3D has brought The Hunger Games' run at the top of the UK box office to an end.
James Cameron has given the 1997 hit movie the 3D treatment as the breakthrough movie of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet's careers returns to the big screen.
The movie took £2.8 million in it's opening weekend ousting The Hunger Games, which is still #1 in America, from the top spot.
But it was another very successful week for the Suzanne Collins adaptation as it took another £2.3 million.
The film slipped just a single place to number two and has taken £15.2 million in the UK alone in the three weeks that it has been on general release.
Mirror Mirror, which is a re-telling of Snow White, was new in at number three. The movie stars Julia Roberts and Lily Collins and it narrowly missed out on the #2 spot as it took £2.38 million.
The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists was down a single place at number four while Wrath of the Titans fell three places to number five.
21 Jump Street fell out of the top five for the first time since its release as it dropped two places from four to six.
Action movie The Cold Light Of Day, which stars Henry Cavill and Bruce Willis, was new in at number seven while The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel's good run continued - falling two places to eight.
StreetDance 2 was this week's biggest faller as it dropped four places to number nine. Housefull 2 was the fourth and final new entry inside the top ten this week at number ten.
