Glee: The 3D Concert has made a disastrous start to its run in cinemas throughout the US, failing to make the top ten in box office sales in its first week.

Fans of the musical show, or Gleeks as they are known, failed to turn up in the numbers that were expected, meaning the film made under $6 million (£3.7 million) - despite being shown in over 2000 3D cinemas.

Although the budget for the film was relatively small - just $9 million (£5.6 million) - and DVD sales expected to prove very successful, these figure still make disapointing reading for bosses at 20th Century Fox, who had hoped for far larger numbers.

Compared to other concert movies, the opening figures look even worse - both Hannah Montana and Justin Bieber grossed approximately $30 million (£18 million) on the opening weekends of their movies, while the Jonas brothers movie brought in over $12 million (£7.3 million) on its initial weekend.

Glee: The 3D Concert comes to the UK on August 19.

Teen movies for the ages...
