"Chicken Little" stays top of UK box office

Written by: Staff

LONDON, Feb 22 (Reuters) Computer-animation ''Chicken Little'' stayed top of the British box office over the weekend, according to Screen International.

The Disney adventure film has now taken nearly 8.5 million pounds during its four-week run and kept ''Big Momma's House 2'' in second place.

Moving up from its debut last week at number three, the movie stars Martin Lawrence as a deskbound FBI agent who sneaks back into the field posing as an enormous housekeeper called Big Momma.

''Final Destination 3'', a sequel to the original horror movie from 2000, slipped one place to number three.

Directed by James Wong and starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ryan Merriman, the film follows a group of teenagers as they try to cheat death.

''Walk the Line'', which charts the life of singer Johnny Cash held steady at number four, one ahead of the highest new entry ''Casanova''.

The remake of the classic tale stars Heath Ledger -- a one-time ''Home and Away'' actor -- as the ultimate romancer who goes on to seek the true meaning of love.

Another new entry was ''Aeon Flux'', a sci-fi adventure which has a mysterious assassin, Charlize Theron, charged with killing a top government official.

At seven, down two places, was another sci-fi adventure ''Zathura'' while eight saw another new entry in the form of ''Good Night, And Good Luck''.

Directed by George Clooney, the film revisits the 1950s and follows journalist Ed Murrow, played by David Strathairn, as he tries to discredit Senator Joseph McCarthy's anti-communist witch-hunt.

Steven Spielberg's Olympic thriller ''Munich'' dropped to nine from sixth while Oscar-nominated gay cowboy drama ''Brokeback Mountain'', which collected four BAFTAs this week, rounded off the top 10.
