British movie BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM is continuing to rise in the American box office - living up to experts' estimates that it is on course to be a big smash.

The soccer movie quietly broke into America's top 10 over the weekend (02-04MAY03) during the eighth week of its run - putting it on course to cross the $11 million (GBP7.3 million).

After opening in just six theatres in early March (03), the movie is now playing in 483 locations across America - far fewer than any other movie in the top 12.

Film studio FOX SEARCHLIGHT plans to continue to roll the movie about a young Indian girl who drams of being a soccer star out at a slow pace. It will expand to more than 500 theatres this weekend (09-11MAY03).

The film's rise is much like 2002 comedy MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING which eventually scooped $225 million (GBP150 million).
