Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel’s aptly-timed comedy Sex Tape has topped the UK and Ireland box office despite proving an anticlimax state-side.
The film grossed £1.4 million over its opening weekend to push Scarlett Johansson’s thriller Lucy into second place.
But Sex Tape failed to hit number one when it debuted in the US in July, entering in fourth place instead. To date it has taken just $38.1 million in ticket sales.
Disney’s space movie Guardians of the Galaxy is at number five, having grossed more than £25 million since its release six weeks ago.
Sex Tape was described as “wittier and less smutty than its reputation might suggest” by The Independent’s film critic.
Its release came just days after nude photos of high profile figures including Jennifer Lawrence, Victoria Justice and Kate Upton were leaked online by an iCloud hacker.Reuse content
