Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3 has stormed to the top of the UK box office in its first weekend on release.

Robert Downey Jr is back in the title role for one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2013.

The film took £13.7 million over the weekend to comfortable take the top spot from action film Olympus Has Fallen.

Iron Man 3 has dominated the international box office over the weekend taking a cool $195.3m - with a release in the U.S. yet to come.

Olympus Has Fallen fell just a single place this week with number two while former number one Oblivion was also down one at three.

The Croods continues to perform strongly as there was no move for the animation movie at four. The movie has taken over £24 million in the UK alone and is one of the most successful movies of the year so far.

Evil Dead rounded off the top five this week after dropping two spots from last week's number three.

The Place Beyond The Pines was down one at six while The Look of Love, which sees Steve Coogan back on the big screen, was the second and final new entry at seven.

Scary Movie 5 and Love Is All You Need were both down two at eight and nine while Oz: The Great And Powerful stayed put at ten.
