Bolt movie is fave UK film

Bolt

Disney animated movie Bolt has fetched a whopping 2.8m in its first weekend in UK cinemas.

The film, about a dog who stars in a TV show and thinks its powers are real, proved a big hit with film fans in its first three days.

Bolt is being shown in some cinemas in 3D, as well as normal 2D, and the amount of money spent on tickets adds together both versions of the film.

Another canine caper, Hotel for Dogs, also did really well, making 1.5m.

The movie, starring Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin, is about a brother and sister who take over a closed hotel and turn it into a home for stray dogs.
