Film: The Charts

Mega-hyped and dreadfully monickered Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels makes number one, with Robert Redford's The Horse Whisperer nuzzling vigorously from behind (The Avengers, meanwhile, quite rightly takes a dive). Stateside, Wesley Snipes cleans up as a black-leather wearing, Marvel Comics-derived vampire-slayer. Bizarre.
