The 3D version of Titanic, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, has entered the UK and Ireland box office chart in pole position.
James Cameron’s film, which won 11 Oscars after its original release in 1997, took £2.8m.
Titanic’s renewed box office success comes ahead of the maritime disaster’s 100th anniversary on 15 April.
Meanwhile, new figures show British films have driven the UK box office in the first three months of 2012.
Releases including The Woman Black starring Daniel Radcliffe lead the cinema chart of the year so far.
