Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy has made it a third week at the top of the UK box office - holding off the challenge from new release Abduction.
The John Le Carre adaptation has grossed almost £8million at the UK box office since it's release and it was the only movie to break the £1million barrier this weekend.
The movie is receiving rave reviews from the critics and it has already been tipped to pick up a Best Picture Oscar nomination.
The highest new entry this week came in the form of Abduction, which sees Taylor Lautner step into an action role and lead the cast.
The movie follows a young man who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website.
The movie had to settle for second while The Phantom of the Opera was new in at number three.
Comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love fell two places to this week's number four while the top five was rounded off by a third new entry, The Debt.
Shark Night 3D was also new at six while The Inbetweeners fell out of the top five for the first time since it's release - dropping three places to number seven.
Drive was also down as it also dropped three places to number eight. What's Your Number was the fifth and final new entry inside the top ten this week at number nine.
Warrior was this week's biggest faller as it dropped seven places to round off the top ten.
