Fame toppled Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs this weekend after just one week in the top spot.

Starring an unknown cast the film is an updated version of the 1980 musical, which centred on the students of the New York Academy of Performing Arts.

The film grossed £2.4 million in it's opening weekend and was one of just two movies to break through the £1 million barrier.

The other was Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, which fell one place to number two, grossed £1.4 million in it's second week of release.

There was another new entry at three in the form of Surrogates, which is the new movie from Bruce Willis.

Set in a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact through surrogate robots, a cop (Willis) is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others’ surrogates.

District 9 fell two places from two to four while Joe Wright's new movies The Soloist, which stars Robert Downey Jr and Jamie Foxx, opened at five.
There were two place drops for 500 Days of Summer, The Final Destination and Dorian Gray but this week's biggest faller was Gamer, which dropped six places from three to nine.
