Taken 3 has topped the UK box office for the second consecutive weekend.



Liam Neeson's action-thriller earned £3.2 million to secure first place in the chart, with Bradley Cooper's American Sniper in second spot with a debut haul of £2.5 million.

Despite Sniper's huge success Stateside, UK audiences have been less welcoming to Clint Eastwood's war drama. The film narrowly pipped The Theory of Everything, on its third week in cinemas, to second place.

Into the Woods sits at number four, while Paddington continues its impressive box office run by charting at five after two months on general release.

Elsewhere, the chart sees new entries from Whiplash, Wild and the live broadcast of Met Opera's The Merry Widow.

The UK box office top ten in full:
1. (1) Taken 3 - £3,295,309
2. (-) American Sniper - £2,530,473
3. (3) The Theory of Everything - £2,326,539
4. (2) Into the Woods - £1,999,377
5. (5) Paddington - £943,320
6. (4) The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies - £640,490
7. (-) Whiplash - £573,546
8. (8) Birdman - £551,250
9. (-) Wild - £524,941
10. (-) The Merry Widow - Met Opera 2015 - £463,195
