British movies have doubled their box office takings in the past two years - thanks to the mega-successful HARRY POTTER franchise. The top ten UK films last year (05) made $2.4 billion (GBP1.35 billion) compared with just $1.2 billion (GBP622 million) in 2003. Films are classed as British if they were filmed in the UK, with UK talent, even if they were made with American money. The top ten grossing UK movies of 2005 were:

1: HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE
2: CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
3: BATMAN BEGINS
4: KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
5: WALLACE AND GROMIT: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT
6: SAHARA
7: THE CORPSE BRIDE
8: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
9: THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY
10: THE BROTHER'S GRIM.
