The Rock smashes onto film chart

The Rock in The Game Plan

A new film starring The Rock and nine-year-old actress Madison Pettis has smashed its way to the top of the movie chart in the US.

The Game Plan is about an American football star who finds out he's got a daughter he knew nothing about.

The little girl, played by Madison, forces The Rock's character to make some big changes to his life.

The movie sold a whopping $22.7m (11m) of tickets on its first weekend in cinemas in North America.

But if you're a fan of WWF star The Rock you'll have to wait to watch the movie, as it's not out in the UK until 2008.

Madison Pettis has done lots of TV work in America but this is one of her first big film roles.
