Godzilla has topped the UK box office on its debut weekend on release.
The Gareth Edwards-directed monster epic earned £6.3 million to easily coast past last week's chart-topper Bad Neighbours and secure the number one spot.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2, now on its fifth weekend on release, falls to number three ahead of romantic comedy The Other Woman and new release The Two Faces of January.
Elsewhere, this week's chart sees sequels Rio 2 and Captain America: The Winter Solider show durability, with the latter taking its total UK earnings to within touching distance of the £20 million mark.
The Wind Rises, Hayao Miyazaki's 11th and final feature film, climbs up from outside the top ten to make the number nine slot.
