Cars Holds Pole Position

Posted in Film on June, 19 2006 8:19 AM

It was another close race for the No.1 spot in this weeks US film chart, but once again those speedy Cars got there first.

The Pixar animation, starring Paul Newman and Owen Wilson, tells the tale of Lightning McQueen, a sports car forced to do community service out in the middle of nowhere. Newman voices Doc Hudson, a car with a mysterious past.

Newman has also recently said that he may be finished with the movie business. "When it's time to get out, it's time to get out. I will probably have one film left in me - the last hurrah."

Cars took just under £17m, with Jack Black's new comedy Nacho Libre coming in second with just under £15m.

Nacho Libre tells the story of a young cook in a religious orphanage, who tries to save it from closure by becoming a masked wrestler. It's a slapstick comedy and if you're a fan of Black's humour, well worth a shot.
