The Invention of Lying (12A)  Independent Fri, 2nd October 2009

This week at the UK box office there was no shifting for Gone Girl as the David Fincher film retains it's hold of the top spot for a second week.

Holding on with a weekend gross of £3.06 million Gone Girl has taken £9.8 million during it's 10 days of release.

Debuting in second place is the latest teen survival movie in the shape of The Maze Runner, based on the first of James Dashner series of books.

Maze Runner takes £2.04 million from the weekend, not a bad debut although in comparison The Hunger Games took £4.9 million on it's debut while Twilight took a comparable £2.5 million.

Also new this week: Horror movie Annabelle at 3, Event film showing for one weekend One Direction Where We Are at 4, romantic comedy The Rewrite is at 9 (are we getting sick of Hugh Grant?).
