The Boxtrolls has topped the UK box office for the second consecutive weekend.
Laika's latest animation pulls in £1.3 million to top the chart ahead of Liam Neeson's latest thriller A Walk Among the Tombstones.
Pride holds its position at number three, while last week's runner-up Lucy falls to number four. Scarlett Johansson's blockbuster has now earned more than £13 million from its impressive UK cinema run.
The Riot Club, a new release starring Sam Claflin, Max Irons and Douglas Booth, rounds out the top five.
Elsewhere, the only other new entry into the top ten is 20,000 Days on Earth, a quasi-documentary about musician Nick Cave.
