LONDON (Reuters Life!) - "Rango," the animated story of a chameleon in the Wild West, was Britain's most popular film over a quiet weekend, Screen International reported on Tuesday.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in alien sci-fi caper "Paul" were down two places at four, just above Oscar best-picture winner "The King's Speech" which clawed back a spot to five.
Last week's chart-topper "Gnomeo and Juliet" was down to six, while sci-fi romance movie "I am Number Four" slipped from three to seven.
The remake of Western classic "True Grit" halted its fall, making up a place to eighth.
"West is West" was up one at nine, with "Yogi Bear" down six places at No. 10.
