The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel makes it 3 weeks at the top in a very quiet weekend at the UK box office.

A third weekend take of £1.4 million sees The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel bring it's total up to 1£1.7 million which is keeping it in-line (a little ahead in fact) to it's predecessor.

Highest new film of the week is Run All Night starring Liam Neeson and Ed harris which enters the box office at number 2.

A relatively low opening gross of just over £800,00 will probably see the film disappear quite quickly from the box office chart.

The only other new film opening on the top 10 this week is Suite Francaise at number 4 with a half a million debut.

Historical charts

A year ago
This time last year a video game adaptation of Need For Speed hit the top of the box office on it's debut knocking 300 Rise of an Empire down to 3rd.

Five years ago
Alice in Wonderland was still riding the top of the box office with the highest new film at 2 in the shape of Shutter Island.

Ten years ago
Hitch made it's way to the top on it's debut weekend knocking Boogeyman from the top to number 3.

Fifteen years ago
Toy Story 2 retained it's lead at the top of the box office and in a very quiet week for new releases the highest new film was The insider at number 7.

Action film Battle: Los Angeles fights its way to the top of the UK box office this week de-throwning Rango in the process.

There was not a lot of hype for the film really, but Battle: Los Angeles still manages to take a fairly modest £1.8 million pound this week. The film stars Aaron Eckhart with a story about aliens invading Los Angeles, not the most original of stories but always a crowd pleaser. The film is top in the US as well.

Falling a single place this week is Rango. The Animated film with the voice of Johnny Depps takes £1.5 million bringing its 2 week gross to £ 3,615,885.

Climbing up a single place this week is the Liam Neeson thriller Unknown which adds just over a million pound to its gross so after 2 weeks it's now taken £ 3,161,588.

Falling to fourth is The Adjustment Bureau with a weekend gross of £911,863 taking its total to £3,082,693 and then new at 5 is Hall Pass which takes a lower than expected £900,936.

This week's box office chart is a lot lower than last week's where Alice in Wonderland was still riding high on number one with a weekend of £7.3 million and a total gross of nearly £23 million. Shutter Island and Green Zone took over a 2 million each and Avatar was still hanging on with over half a million pound, its total gross in the UK had reached nearly £90 million.
