The Pixar prequel held off competition from Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright's Cornetto Trilogy finale The World's End to secure the number one spot with a £2.7 million haul.

The World's End earned £2.1 million from its 530 locations nationwide, beating the £1.6 million opening from Shaun of the Dead in 2004 but falling behind Hot Fuzz's £5.9 million haul.
