'Arthur Christmas' Tops UK Box Office Chart

The festive season isn't over for Arthur Christmas - the animated movie has jumped back to the top of the UK box office chart.

The seasonal comedy, featuring the voices of Bill Nighy and James McAvoy, climbed up two places to regain the top spot after taking £2.1m in its seventh week of release.

Last week's top two films, Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows and Alvin And The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, dropped to second and third place respectively.

Elsewhere in the rundown, animated Shrek spin-off Puss In Boots claimed fourth place, while star-studded film New Year's Eve rounds out the top five.

Meanwhile, the Sherlock Holmes sequel and Tom Cruise's fourth Mission: Impossible movie, Ghost Protocol, head into 2012 as the world's top two films.

The Mission: Impossible thrill ride took over the top spot in America at the weekend, replacing director Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes.
