Dinosaur stomped into the number one spot in the UK's box office chart as it increased its second weekend gross by 8% to take $3.1m (£2.2m) from 495 sites. Coinciding with the schools' half-term break, the Disney picture has grossed an impressive $14.8m (£10.2m) after ten days.

Supernatural thriller What Lies Beneath at number two also had a successful weekend dropping just 20% from its opening number one position bringing its 10-day gross to $7.8m (£5.4m).

UK distributor Momentum Pictures used this Halloween period to launch the sequel to 1999's hit scary movie The Blair Witch Project day and date with North America. Despite suffering from poor to middling reviews, Book Of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 opened at 346 cinemas with a stable $1.4m (£0.9m) from 346 sites, excluding previews of $151,199.

In the official chart, which includes previews, Book Of Shadows is placed at number 3, above Billy Elliot's $1.5m (£1m), although a true three-day comparison would put Billy Elliot some $75,000 (£50,000) above Blair Witch 2. The British film and Oscar-hopeful has now pulled in a cumulative gross of $16.6m (£11.4m).

Elsewhere in the chart, there are two major successes - both for limited release, foreign-language films.

Yash Raj Films' release of the long awaited Indian film Mohabbatein opened at number nine in the chart with a three day gross of $355,751 (£245,468) - giving it a eye-popping screen average of $14,823 (£10,228). While Metro Tartan's release of In The Mood For Love from the highly acclaimed director Wong Kar-Wai scooped $134,645 (£92,905) from 13 screens, breaking the house record at London's Curzon Soho cinema with over $30,000 from one screen.
