The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has retained its place at the top of the UK box office.
The Andrew Garfield-led superhero sequel earned £3.3 million on its second weekend on release to hold off competition from The Other Woman and Transcendence and secure first place.
Romantic comedy The Other Woman, starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, pulled in £2.6 million to easily outpace Transcendence's showing of £1.18 million.
Rio 2 charted at number four, while Captain America: The Winter Soldier completed the top five. Marvel's sequel has now earned £18 million after five weeks on release in the UK, a total that's nearly £10 million more than its predecessor The First Avenger.
Elsewhere, the Met Opera's live cinema broadcast of Cosi Fan Tutte pulled in £362,487 to help it chart at number seven.
