Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 has held off competition from Furry Vengeance and A Nightmare On Elm Street to stay at the top of the UK box office.

A New entry at three the movie lagged behind Vengeance as it too £1.3 million, it too has struggled with the critics.

Jackie Earle Haley has taken over the iconic role of Freddy Krueger and Samuel Bayer is in the director's chair.

At night, they're all having the same dream--of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face and a gardener's glove with knives for fingers. And they're all hearing the same frightening voice...

One by one, he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his, and the only way out is to wake up.

And it's new entries that dominate the top of the UK box office this week as Hot Tub Time Machine is new at four while Jennifer Lopez's new film The Back Up Plan is new at five.

Despite the controversy surrounding the film Four Lions is the fifth and final new entry inside the top ten this week at number six.
