TURBO SPEEDS TO TOP OF U.K. BOX OFFICE

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 - Animated snail-racing adventure TURBO has beaten Tom Hanks' Captain PhillipS to the top of the British box office.

The family film, which features the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul GiamattI and Samuel L. Jackson, grossed $5.85 million (=C2£3.9 million) in its opening week, proving more popular with U.K. audiences than it did upon its release in North America in July , when it entered the chart at number three.

Turbo's U.K. surge topped hostage drama Captain Phillips, which debuted in second place with $5.1 million (=C2£3.4 million), while Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger's Escape Plan trailed behind in third place with $1.44 million (=C2£961,470).

Last week's most popular film, thriller Prisoners, and British movie musical Sunshine on Leith rounded out the new top five.
