The animated adventures of Wallace And Gromit has out-classed competition from both Emma Thompson's NANNY MCPHEE and Tim Burton's Corpse Bride to cling on to top position at the UK box office.

THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT, which has taken GBP16.6 million ($29.9 million) in the UK so far, grossed GBP4.6 million last weekend (22-3OCT05) alone.

The babysitting mayhem of NANNY McPHEE climbs to second spot, while grisly CORPSE BRIDE is a new entry at number three.

Nicolas Cage's arms-trade movie Lord of War falls four places to number six while Broken Flowers, starring Bill Murray and Julie Delpy, makes its debut in seventh place.

Costume drama Pride And Prejudice falls to eighth position while comedy Kinky Boots is at number nine.
