  Rings is still top film in UK
Updated 23 January 2002, 15.13
Dominic Monaghan and Elijah Wood star in Lord of the Rings
The Lord of the Rings is still the most popular film in the UK, despite lots of new movies threatening to take over.

The fantasy epic starring heartthrobs Orlando Bloom and Elijah Wood is number one at the UK box office.

In America, the film, based on the novels by JRR Tolkien, has been knocked off the top spot by war movie Black Hawk Down, but it's still going strong here.

One of most successful films ever

Black Hawk Down is at number two in the UK though, closely followed by comedy adventure Rat Race, which stars Rowan Atkinson and Whoopi Goldberg, and of course, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

But the Rings is still set to be one of the most successful films of all time - it has already taken a whopping 167m in the US and Canada alone..
