Fantasy comedy Night at the Museum has knocked animated penguin movie Happy Feet from the UK box office top spot.

The film, which stars Ben Stiller as a security guard facing exhibits which come to life, took almost 4m over the first weekend after Christmas.

Happy Feet was well beaten with takings of 1.8m, while Casino Royale hung onto third place with 1.4m in sales.

Body-swap comedy It's a Boy/Girl Thing is a new entry in fourth place after making 967,903.

Transatlantic romance The Holiday, starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Jude Law falls to fifth place, ahead of another animated animal movie, Flushed Away.

Time travel thriller Deja Vu is at number seven with dragon fantasy Eragon, literary adaptation Perfume and Clint Eastwood's World War II epic Flags of Our Fathers rounding out the top ten.

The top money-making movie is Casino Royale with a total UK gross of 49.6m seven weeks after its release.
