Arthur Christ­mas

In its sev­enth week of release, Aard­man Animation’s Arthur Christ­mas has returned to the top spot at the­aters in the United King­dom and Ireland.

Fea­tur­ing the voice of James McAvoy as Santa Claus’s youngest son, the fam­ily com­edy leapt from No. 3 over the week­end to col­lect £2.05 mil­lion ($3.16 mil­lion U.S.).

Arthur Christ­mas made an aver­age of £3,729 ($5,746) from the 549 venues where it was screened. The movie has made a total of £19.7 mil­lion ($30.4 mil­lion) so far.

Third place — down from sec­ond on the pre­vi­ous week­end — went to Alvin and the Chip­munks: Chip-Wreckedwith £1.13 mil­lion ($1.74 million).

Stay­ing in fourth place was Shrek pre­quel Puss In Boots with £899,231 ($1.4 million).

Happy Feet Twofell one posi­tion to eighth.

Because British movie houses were closed on Christ­mas Day, receipts were gen­er­ally down on the week­end. Track­ing com­pany Screen Inter­na­tional recorded just two days of box office takings.
