The "Sex And The City" girls can rely on their fans in the U.K. - their movie sequel has strutted to the top of the British box office, just days after failing to excite U.S. cinemagoers.

The highly-anticipated film failed to hit the top spot in America over the Memorial Day weekend, losing out to both "Shrek Forever After" and "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time."

But Brit devotees of the hit TV series-turned-movie franchise flocked to catch the return of Carrie Bradshaw.

The sequel shot to the top of the box office with a $9.2 million opening weekend.

Dance movie "Streetdance 3D" fell to second place with takings of $2.7 million, while Jake Gyllenhaal's "Prince of Persia" debuted in third place with $2.4 million.

Russell Crowe's update of the "Robin Hood" story and Dwayne Johnson's new family comedy "Tooth Fairy" round out the new British top five.
