Chronicle has toppled War Horse from the top of the UK box office after a three week reign.

The movie marks the directorial feature debut for Josh Trank and follows three high school friends who gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery.

Chronicle took £2.1 million in it's opening weekend to hold off another new movie Journey 2: The Mysterious Island for the top spot.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, follow up to Journey To The Centre of the Earth, took £1.2 million and had to settle for second.

The Descendants dropped just a single place to three this week while War Horse was down three at number four.

Jack and Jill, the latest movie from Adam Sandler, was a new entry at five while Man In A Ledge was new in at six.

The Grey, A Monster In Paris and The Artist were the biggest fallers this week as they all dropped four places to seven, eight and nine.

Carnage was the fifth and final new entry inside the top ten this week as it opened at number ten.
