LES MISERABLES REIGNS AT U.K. BOX OFFICE

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - Tom Hooper's movie musical Les Miserables has seen off competition from Oscars rivals LINCOLN and Zero Dark Thirty to land a third week at the top of the U.K. box office.

The stage show adaptation, which stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, earned $6.4 million (=C2£4 million) to retain first place and keep fellow Academy Award Best Picture contender Django Unchained in second, with takings of $3.8 million (=C2£2.4 million).

Steven Spielberg's historical epic Lincoln debuted at number three with $2.6 million (=C2£1.6 million), and Ang Lee's drama Life of Pi - another contender for the Oscars' top award - dropped a place to four after raking in $1.8 million (=C2£1.1 million).

Kathryn Bigelow's war drama Zero Dark Thirty is another new entry, earning just over $1.6 million (=C2£1 million) to round out the top five.
