    London (Reuters): Cult horror movie Snakes on a Plane topped the UK box office on its opening weekend, knocking Disney/Pixar's Cars from the No 1 spot, according to figures from Screen International. The much hyped film starring Samuel L Jackson as an FBI agent battling to protect a government witness on a plane crawling with deadly snakes took 1.07 million pounds, marginally ahead of Cars which slipped to second. Third down from second after seven weeks in the charts was Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest while animated horror movie Monster House was fourth.

    New at five was John Tucker Must Die, in which three alpha females from different cliques discover they have all been dating the college stud and decide to seek revenge. At six down from five was the wrestling priest of Nacho Libre, one above the week's biggest faller, the much-panned remake of Miami Vice starring Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx. Eighth down from six was Bollywood hit Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and ninth, up from 11, was Garfield 2, featuring the cat in England. At 10 was the Jennifer Aniston/Vince Vaughn marital comedy The Break-Up, down from seven.
