‘Fockers’ tops UK Christmas box office

Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller in Little Fockers

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro’s Little Fockers has topped the UK box office over the Christmas weekend.

The comedy sequel pulls in more than £3 million to chart ahead of blockbusters The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader and Tron: Legacy. Fockers‘ opening haul is more than the £2.2 million made by Meet The Parents in 2000, but less than the £7.9 million grossed by its follow-up Meet The Fockers in January 2005.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1, which has now made more than £46 million at the UK box office, falls a place to number four. Bollywood film Tees Maar Khan opens strongly in fifth place with £319,870.

Elsewhere, The Tourist experiences a sharp fall to number seven where it charts ahead of animated movie Animals United and new release Arthur And The Great Adventure.

Christina Aguilera and Cher’s Burlesque completes the top ten.
