StreetDance tops movie charts

StreetDance 3D has topped the movie charts in its opening weekend, beating Disney's blockbuster, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

The dance flick was released on Friday and took £1.79million in three days, making it Britain's top film.

Prince of Persia came out on the same day and made £1.37million over the weekend.

It's good news for the makers of StreetDance, because Prince of Persia cost a lot more money to make.

StreetDance is the world's first 3D dance movie and features George Sampson, Diversity and Flawless.

The film is about a street dance crew that's forced to work with a group of ballet dancers.

Disney's Prince of Persia movie is based on the popular video game.

It stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton as a prince and princess who join forces to save an ancient dagger that can turn back time.
