The Boxtrolls continued its good run at the top of the UK box office, seeing off Liam Neeson's Walk Among The Tombstones to score the top spot. It took £1.31 million on its debut and should be at the business end of things after the coming weekend.

Last weekend, The Boxtrolls finished above Neeson's movie, the stage adaptation of The Riot Club and the Nick Cave movie 20,000 Days on Earth. The critically acclaimed movie Pride took £578,000 to finish third, while Luc Besson's Lucy is still hanging around in the top five.

The stop-motion animation is likely to feature in that top five, but it will likely lose its No.1 crown to one of a number of newcomers. Firstly, there's the Denzel Washington action-thriller The Equalizer, about a man who believes he had put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to a new, quieter life. However, when he meets a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he is unable to stand by idly.

David Cronenberg's Maps To The Stars will likely pull in decent crowds from having Robert Pattinson on the posters, though the movie is essentially an avant-garde picture and is unlikely to grab the top spot.

However, British comedy What We Did On Our Holidays should perform strongly after decent reviews and a stellar cast that includes Rosamund Pike, David Tennant and Billy Connolly. It follows the story of Doug and Abi, a couple who take their three children on a trip to Scotland for a big family gathering, despite being in the midst of a difficult divorce that they have asked their children to keep secret from their extended family.
