Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was the most successful film at the UK and Ireland box office in 2007.

The movie, the fifth in the series based on JK Rowling's books, made more than 49.4m in ticket sales.

Meanwhile, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, came in at number two, making over 42m.

Both those films, along with Shrek the Third, did better than The Simpsons Movie - the first big screen version of the animated TV series.

The Simpsons Movie made more than 38m in ticket sales, but still came in as the fourth most successful film of 2007.
