The Fellowship of the Ring has finally been knocked off the top spot in the US box office charts after four weeks at number one.

Replacing it is controversial war film Black Hawk Down. It stars Lord of the Rings heart-throb Orlando Bloom, who had to chop off his lovely hair for the role!

Magical success

The Fellowship of the Ring has now slipped to third place, but is still set to be one of the most successful films ever.

It's now raked in a mammoth 167m ($240m) in the US and Canada alone.

Meanwhile, its magical rival Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - as it's known in the US - has conjured up 216m ($310m) there, making it the ninth biggest film in US movie history.

But the two films have not lost their magic in the UK. The Fellowship of the Ring is number one with Harry Potter a close second in the UK box office chart.t.
