'Rango' back on top of UK box office

Johnny Depp's Wild West chameleon movie "Rango" is Britain's most popular film again after a quiet weekend at the box office, according to Screen International on Tuesday.

Depp and Isla Fisher are the main voices behind the animated Rango, which made just over 1 million pounds ($1.6 million) to take over pole position from the film that knocked it off the top spot last week, "Battle: Los Angeles."

Liam Neeson as a botanist in search of his own stolen identity in "Unknown" stayed at three.

Snowboarding comedy "Chalet Girl" was new at four with Felicity Jones and Bill Nighy while Matthew McConaughey in "The Lincoln Lawyer" came in at five.

Owen Wilson in extra-marital romp "Hall Pass" slipped one place to six, just above bad-boy gang movie "Anuvahood" which made its debut at seven.

"The Adjustment Bureau," with Matt Damon as a man trying to avoid the future fate has planned for him, was the week's biggest faller, dropping four places to eight.

Oscar-garlanded royal biopic "The King's Speech" was down three to nine with "Gnomeo and Juliet" down at 10 from eight.
