Russell Crowe London, May 25 (ANI): StreetDance 3D, a movie starring winners of Britain’s Got Talent, has become the top gainer at the UK box office after flying past Robin Hood.

The movie, made with a budget of just 4.5 million pounds, has become a bigger hit than Russell Crowe starrer Robin Hood. The production cost of Robin Hood is more than 200 million dollars.

The movie features Diversity, the winners of reality show Britain’s Got Talent.

StreetDance 3D had a box office collection of 1.8 million pounds on its opening weekend and it had a total collection of 2.4 million pounds, reports The Telegraph.

The movie has been sold to almost 30 countries.

“The success of StreetDance 3D has far exceeded our expectations,” producer James Richardson said.

“The fact that an independent British film has beaten the US heavyweights just shows how well StreetDance 3D has connected with audiences across the country,” he added.

“It’s another shining example of how Lottery funding can make all the difference in discovering and nurturing new creative talent in the UK,” John Woodward, chief executive of the Lottery-funded UK Film Council said. (ANI)
