Battle: Los Angeles has won the UK box office battle debuting in first place over the weekend.
The Aaron Eckhart-led sci-fi blockbuster opened with £1.8m to narrowly edge past Johnny Depp’s Rango and secure the chart top spot. The action thriller is the second best opening for star Aaron Eckhart, trailing only The Dark Knight.
With Unknown and The Adjustment Bureau still pulling in the punters in their second weekends, thriller Unknown holds its position at number three, while The Adjustment Bureau falls to number four. Meanwhile the new release Hall Pass, the latest comedy from the Farrelly brothers, completes the top five.
