Last weekend Germany's boxoffice received a welcome shakeup with the arrival of three new releases MeetThe Fockers, Constantine and the local family film Die Wilden Kerle 2- at the top of the chart, toppling the local animation feature Felix - EinHase Auf Weltreise which had itself pushed The Aviator off the poleposition the previous week.

The UIP comedy was the firstfilm to top 500,000 admissions in its opening weekend this year, while BVI'srelease of Joachim Masannek's sequel based on his bestselling series ofchildren's books about young footballers' adventures, chalked up over $2.2m intakings, more than double what the firstfilm made on its first weekend in 2003.
