Spookily, 20th Century Fox's What Lies Beneath resurfaced at the top of the UK box office chart for the second time in its five-week run this weekend, clawing back the lead it lost last weekend to another Fox release, Bedazzled. The Harrison Ford-Michelle Pfeiffer picture took $1,156,243 (£811,997) from 365 sites for a screen average of $3,168 (£2,225). It previously lost pole position to Dinosaur before bobbing up a week later.
Opposition was admittedly weak, with UK indie stalwart Entertainment Film Distributors providing the highest opener, Little Nicky, which grossed $814,855 (£572,250) from 304 sites for third place in the chart.
The week's other two top 15 openers, Momentum Pictures' The Way Of The Gun and Icon's Duets, came in respectively at numbers 11 and 13. Gun took $272,215 (£191,169) off 141 screens for an average of $1,930 (£1,356). Duets could only mange $132,066 (£92,746) from 135 for an average of $978 (£687).
What Lies Beneath was not the only box office come-back this week. Yash Raj Films scored the highest site average out of top 15 films with Mohabbatein. In its fourth week, the film re-entered the top 15 chart at number 15 for a cumulative gross of $1,135,162 (£797,192).
