Gone In Sixty Seconds sped to the top of the UK box office over the weekend with an opening three-day gross of $2.4m (£1.6m) from 394 sites, excluding previews of $230,000. This gave the Jerry Bruckheimer-Touchstone Pictures co-production a site average of $6,600 (£4,353), a stable opening considering the mixed review coverage and warm weekend weather.
The Perfect Storm dropped 41% to second place in the chart with a three-day gross of $1.7m (£1.1m), while family films Stuart Little and Chicken Run at third and fourth place held over well falling just 25% and 26% respectively.
UIP's new entry, the DreamWorks SKG animation The Road To El Dorado, failed to make an impact at the box office, performing twice as badly as the distributor's opening of The Flintstones In Viva Rock Vegas last week. El Dorado pulled in $191,000 (£126,285) from 264 sites compared to Flintstones' $346,000 (£228,363) from 270 locations.
Another Indian film reached the Top 15 chart with the release of Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega from Eros Entertainment. The film grossed $182,000 (£119,943) from 20 cinemas over the weekend.
Two foreign-language films Le Veuve De Saint Pierre (The Widow Of Saint Pierre) and the Iranian film The Colour Of Paradise found limited distribution on two screens through FilmFour and five screens through Optimum Releasing respectively. Their opening weekend grosses were $22,777 and $20,077 apiece.
