Pegg's new alien comedy lands on number one at the U.K. box office chart after knocking off animation hit 'Gnomeo and Juliet'.

Simon Pegg's new alien comedy "Paul" has proven to be out of this world - after entering the U.K. box office chart at number one. The extra-terrestrial movie knocked animated hit "Gnomeo and Juliet" off the top spot, taking in $8.3 million in its first week of release.

"Gnomeo and Juliet" fell to two after grossing $3.3 million, Colin Firth's royal drama "The King's Speech" came third with takings of $2.6 million and its Oscar rival "True Grit" held steady at four with $2.3 million.

"Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son" rounded out the top five as the second highest new entry, scoring $2.1 million. Justin Bieber's tour documentary "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" entered this week's Top 10 countdown at nine with earnings of $120,000.
