The second (and final) weekend of the February school half-term holiday inevitably proved a boost for children's and family fare. The Haunted Mansion slipped just 7% from its opening weekend, while excluding previews. Cheaper By The Dozen (23%), Looney Tunes: Back In Action (57%) and Tooth (81%) all saw rises week-on-week against their launches.
The most impressive performance of the weekend came from the four-screen release of Turkish title Vizontele Tuuba. One week after another Turkish title, Head On, won the Golden Bear at this year's Berlinale Vizontele Tuuba sold a massive 9,827 tickets for a $103,561 (£55,405) gross in the UK - a phenomenal $25,890 average.
The Turkish title put other releases including UK comedy Sex Lives Of The Potato Men, Canadian Oscar contender The Barbarian Invasions and US indie Pieces Of April into the shade with its performance.
The 25th placed Pieces Of April saw the second best screen average of the new releases taking $51,697 (£27,658) from 11 screens for a strong $4,700 result per location.
The Republic of Ireland-only release of Blind Flight, through Abbey Films, saw a solid run at 20 screens. It is released in the UK by Optimum Releasing on April 9.
Meanwhile following a week of massive free publicity thanks to BAFTA wins for best actor Bill Murray and best actress Scarlett Johannson - as well as Johansson's London presence at the BAFTAs and Brit Awards (a British music awards show) and news of her signing as the new face of Calvin Klein - Lost In Translation saw a tremendous 28% week-on-week rise in its seventh weekend.
The Tokyo-set title is already Momentum Pictures' highest grossing film of all-time with $14.7m (£7.9m) and could receive a further boost should it win in any of the four Oscar categories it is nominated in this Sunday.
