Meatballs a tasty hit at U.K. box office

The 3D comedy, featuring vocal talent from actors James Caan and Bill Hader, knocked sci-fi drama District 9 to second place, with earnings of $1.2 million (£810,600), after two weeks at the top of the box office charts.

Gerard Butler’s sci-fi thriller Gamer opened at three, while romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer jumped up a spot to four.

Horror movie The Final Destination slipped three places to round out the top five.
