Lots of new entries this week as Finding Nemo retains the top spot with a slight drop off from last week down 22%.

Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Volume 1 stays in second spot but with a serious drop down 43%. Richard Curtis Christmas cracker Love Actually entered the top ten in third slightly off projections, followed by SWAT and Alain Resnais' Pas Sur La Bouche, the director's first film since 1997 smash On Connaît La Chanson.

The majority of other top ten films were off by over 50% - a slump for the box office which saw a sharp improvement in November. Lack of recognition for its stars and stiff competition saw Elf bow at a rather dismal number 12, despite a strong campaign to boot. Next week sees The Return Of The King and a likely return to healthier numbers.
