The all singing all dancing Fame has held onto the top spot for a second week, despite close competition from new release The Invention of Lying.

Fame, a remake of the eighties, grossed a further £1.7 million as it held onto the top spot. Ricky Gervais' latest film had to settle for second spot.

The Invention of Lying is a comedy set in a world where no one has ever lied, until a writer seizes the opportunity for personal gain.

2009 has been a good year for funnyman Gervais after the box office success of Night At The Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and now The Invention of Lying.

He is currently directing and starring in Cemetery Junction, due for release next year.

Fourteen years after Pixar made their big breakthrough with Toy Story, yes it really was back in 1995, Toy Story is back at the box office once again this time in 3D.

The remasterd movie, which is only having a limited run in cinemas, opened at three while Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs fell two places from two to four.

The top four movies all broke through the £1 million barrier at the box office this week.

Surrogates, which had dropped two places, rounded off the top five.

There was just one other new entry inside the top ten this week in the form of Pandorum at seven. The Soloist was this week's biggest faller as it dropped from five to nine.
