Spy has made it a box office double and take the top spot in the UK as well as in the U.S.



The Paul Feig directed comedy seems to be winning over fans and critics and has toppled disaster movie San Andreas from the #1 spot here in the UK.

The movie, which stars Melissa McCarthy in the central role, took over £2.5 million in its opening weekend to easily see off the challenge from San Andreas.

San Andreas - which has been another big box office success for Dwayne Johnson - slipped just a single place to number two.

Insidious: Chapter 3 was the second highest new entry inside the top ten this week as the horror film opened at number three. This is the third film in the franchise and sees Leigh Whannell take over the director's chair from James Wan.

Mad Max: Fury Road was down a single this week at number four, while Pitch Perfect 3 was down three places at five.

Former #1 Avengers: Age of Ultron fell out of the top five for the first time as it slipped a single place to number six. However, the film has become the fifth highest grossing film after leap frogging Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 on the all-time list.

Tomorrow: A World Beyond was down three places at seven, while Empire Strikes Back made a welcome return to the box office. The Star Wars movie was shown for four days as part of Secret Cinema and re-entered the chart at number eight.

Dil Dhadakne Do was a fourth and final new entry at nine, while comedy Man Up rounded off the top ten. The Simon Pegg and Lake Bell comedy fell three places from last week's number seven.
