  Potter film knocked off top spot in US
Updated 10 December 2001, 11.04
Harry Potter finally beaten at the US box office
Harry Potter has been knocked off the number one spot in the US box office charts.

The hit film has been overtaken by Ocean's 11, which had a record-breaking first weekend.

Ocean's 11 is a remake of a 1960 comedy and stars George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Matt Damon.

It took 27m since opening on Friday - the biggest opening weekend in December of all time.

Still magic

But the magic of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone hasn't worn off just yet.

It's already taken 168m since it was released just 24 days ago.

And it took a record-breaking 65m in its first three days in the US.
