Last weekend The Boxtrolls managed to keep a very slender lead ahead of Liam Neeson in a tightly fought battle for the top.
The Boxtrolls makes it 2 weeks at the top, this week with no advanced screenings, but it still manages to retain a £1.33 million weekend and £3.6 million from 10 days of release.
Highest new entry for the week is A Walk Among the Tombstones starring Liam Neeson reprising a role for which he seems to have found a nice since his starring in Taken.
Tombstones narrowly missed out the the top spot by about £15 million, taking £1.31 for the weekend, with The Equaliser being released on Friday it will likely not get it's day at the top.
Also new this week are
Historical box office

The Boxtrolls hit the number 1 spot at the UK box office this week, but it had a little help from previews screenings the previous week.
In a similar vein to Bad Neighbours from earlier in the year, The Boxtrolls' official gross for the weekend is £2 million, but £600,000 was achieved with the previous weeks previews.
A £1.6 million weekend would have still seen it at the top but with a much reduced opening, last weeks top film, Lucy falls to second place £811,936, still £800,000 behind.
Regardless of how figures are worked out it was still a very quiet weekend at UK cinemas, only one film over a million and film number 15 under £100,000.
With no major blockbuster out this week either, we might see a similar picture this time next week.
