Bond makes it a month at the top of the UK box office

25-Nov-2008 • Quantum Of Solace

Reuters reported today on the top form shown by "Quantum of Solace" at the UK box office.

LONDON (Reuters) - The latest James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" has notched up a month at the top of the box office, blowing away the competition for a fourth straight weekend according to Screen International.

The 22nd official Bond film, with Daniel Craig in his second outing as 007, earned another 2.8 million pounds for a total of 45.1 million pounds so far. Its nearest rival, director Ridley Scott's espionage drama "Body of Lies" which came in at No. 2, could only manage 991,979 pounds, despite boasting stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe.

New at three was "My Best Friend's Girl," with Kate Hudson, Jason Biggs and Dane Cook in a sex-and-swearing, love-triangle comedy.
"High School Musical 3: Senior Year," with Zac Efron, Vanessa Anne Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale was down one place at four while "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" slipped a place to five with its tale of two friends going triple-XXX to pay their rent.

Down four places at six was "Max Payne," a video game spin-off with Mark Wahlberg as a lone avenger in New York.

Ricky Gervais was down two at seven as the cantankerous dentist in "Ghost Town."

Horror thriller "Quarantine" made its debut at No. 8 with a documentary-style tale of madness, death and zombies in a locked tenement building.

The animated evil scientists of "Igor" were unchanged at nine while Bollywood movie "Dostana" was down from six to 10.

Thanks to `Simon` for the alert.
