David Mackenzie's acclaimed beat adaptation Young Adam received its world box office debut this week in The Netherlands.

Launching for independent distributor Three Lines Pictures, the smallest of the territory's distributors, the film got off to an inauspicious start over its four-day opening. However the 12 screen release had already taken $18,024 (Euro 16,348) from previews - more than the weekend take. The next territory to receive the drama is its homeland of the UK on Sep 26 through Warner Bros.

The big launch of the week in The Netherlands was UIP's The Italian Job. The Hollywood re-imagining of the 1960's UK classic opened second in the chart but scored the best screen average of the weekend from its 78 screen release. It also had previews, of $65,215 (Euro 59,150).
