Spectre is still sitting pretty at the top of the UK box office, making it a third week in the number one spot.



Spectre is closing in on £80 million in the UK alone and took a further £7.8 million to stay at the top of the box office and hold off the challenge from The Lady in the Van.

The Lady in the Van was the highest new entry this week and marked the return of Maggie Smith to the big screen and another fantastic comedy role.

The Lady in the Van is an adaptation of the Alan Bennett play of the same name and Bennett himself has penned the film's screenplay. The movie sees Nicholas Hytner in the director's chair.

The film took £2.2 million in its opening weekend to comfortably take the number two spot behind Spectre this week.

Hotel Transylvania 2 fell a single place to number two, while Bollywood film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was new in at number four. Steve Jobs was the third and final new entry as it opened at number five.

The movie sees Danny Boyle back in the director's chair, while Michael Fassbender has been winning over the critics in the title role. While the film has been a critical hit, the movie has struggled at the box office in the U.S. and has not done much better in the UK on its opening weekend.

Brooklyn slipped three places this week as it fell out of the top five at number six. Pan was also on the way down as the Joe Wright directed film slipped from four to this week's number seven.

The Martian and Suffragette were also down two spots as they finished the weekend at eight and nine.

Burnt, which stars Bradley Cooper in the central role, was this week's biggest faller as it dropped five places to round off this week's top ten.
