Nemo continues box office success
Finding Nemo
The film has become one of the biggest hits of the year
Finding Nemo, the hit animated movie from the makers of Toy Story, has held onto the top of the UK and Ireland box office chart for a fourth week.

It beat off a remake of the 1970s horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Meg Ryan's much publicised thriller In The Cut.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre entered the chart at two, while In The Cut was at number eight.

Finding Nemo has made over 40m in the UK alone since its release in October.

The film took 3.4m this week, compared with the 1.4m earned by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Blockbuster

In third slot was Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, which fell one place having taken 1.1m.

The Coen brothers' Intolerable Cruelty, which stars George Clooney and Catherine Zeta Jones, was in fourth, taking 1m.

The badly-received League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, starring Sean Connery, fell one place to fifth.

Finding Nemo, the fifth full-length feature from animation studio Pixar, has been one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, taking almost $340m (200m) at US box offices.
