Gravity still flying high at U.K. box office

Outer space drama Gravity is showing no signs of coming back down to Earth after it topped the U.K. box office chart for a second consecutive week. The movie, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as two astronauts cut adrift following an accident, took $7.2 million (£4.8 million) over the weekend (15-18Nov13) to remain in the number one spot.
Last week’s (ends15Nov13) runner-up, Thor: The Dark World, was also a non-mover with $2.6 million (£1.7 million), and British drama Philomena held on to third place with $1.5 million (£1 million).
New release The Counselor came fourth in the countdown, with $1.2 million (£815,000), and The Butler debuted in fifth with $1.2 million (£794,000).
