The Disney movie maintained its takings of £3.4 million to leap up a spot into pole position. The Die Hard sequel dropped 64% in ticket sales to fall into second place.

Mama, the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror starring Jessica Chastain, is a new entry at number three with £1.5 million. Oscar-winning musical Les Misérables holds its place at number four, while I Give It A Year completes the top five.

Elsewhere, new releases Cloud Atlas and Song for Marion enter the top ten at numbers six and eight respectively.
