Racing drama The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift has proved the most popular film in the UK and Ireland for the second weekend running.

It took 1m at the box office to finish ahead of The Lake House, which stars Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves and entered at number two, taking 760,000.

The Da Vinci Code climbed two places to three on its sixth week of release.

X-Men: The Last Stand fell from two to four, and Ken Loach's The Wind That Shakes the Barley entered at five.

His film on Ireland's struggle for independence won the Palme d'Or, the main award at the Cannes Film Festival, last month.

Its position in the top five was notable because it was shown on only 105 screens in the UK and Ireland.

The rest of the top four film scould each be seen in at least three times as many screens.

Martial arts movie Fearless was a new entry at six, with the remake of The Omen falling four places to number seven.

Also down four - to eight - was Hard Candy, in which a teenage girl torments a suspected paedophile in his own home.

Making up the rest of the top 10 was new entry from Bollywood, superhero film Krrish at nine, and violent drama Ultraviolet, starring Milla Jovovich, at 10.
