Daniel Radcliffe thriller scares off 'The Muppets'
The Woman In Black has held number one at the UK box office for a second week.
Daniel Radcliffe‘s first big screen role post-Harry Potter sees off close competition from The Muppets to keep the top spot, taking £3.5 million.
The only new entry on the whole chart of Nicolas Cage‘s comic book sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance, which lands at number three with a take of £1.3 million. The top five is completed by the 3D version of Star Wars prequel The Phantom Menace and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
Box office numbers were boosted by the half term audience, with The Woman In Black, The Muppets and Journey 2 all recording an increase in numbers. But with the Oscars approaching, The Artist rose even higher, with a 102% boost in ticket sales.
