Matrix movie tops UK box office
Matrix Revolutions
Matrix Revolutions is the final film in the trilogy
Sci-fi action film The Matrix Revolutions has jumped straight to the top of the UK box office charts.

The film, which has already topped the US box office and stars Keanu Reeves, pushed Disney's Finding Nemo down to second place.

The Coen brothers' Intolerable Cruelty, with Catherine Zeta Jones and George Clooney, moved up one to third place.

And US horse drama Seabiscuit took fourth place, with Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill falling down to number six.

Record breaking

The final part of The Matrix trilogy has taken $204m (120m) at cinemas around the world in a record-breaking opening weekend.

The Matrix Revolutions was released on Wednesday at exactly the same time on 18,000 screens in about 100 countries.

At number five in the UK was horror remake The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, about a group of teenagers terrorised by Leatherface, a rampaging monster armed with a power tool.

Action adventure The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen fell two places to seventh.

Director Jane Campion's erotic thriller In the Cut, starring Meg Ryan, fell two places to tenth.
