Chart supplied by Screen International

Disney steals the number one slot with its most anodyne outing yet (above). What do you expect - the blasted thing is hogging 397 screens! But in London, its seven screens are dwarfed by To Die For's 14. There, Gus Van Sant's blunt but diverting satire easily beat Steven Seagal's blunt but diverting thriller Under Siege 2, which was a flop in the States too.
