Nov 20, 2013 | 9:21am EST

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).
