Pride and Prejudice, starring Keira Knightley, has held on to the top spot of the UK film charts for a third week.

Highly-praised graphic novel adaptation A History of Violence opened at number two, with soccer film Goal in at three.

Guy Ritchie's much-maligned movie Revolver dropped six places to eighth overall, taking 59% less in ticket sales than in its debut week.

Pride and Prejudice, which also stars Matthew Macfadyen, has now taken almost 10m at the box office in three weeks.

There were only two other new films in the top 10 - crime drama Four Brothers, starring Mark Wahlberg, entered the chart in fourth spot while comedy Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo took ninth position.

A History of Violence is being tipped by some critics for Oscar success next year.

Directed by David Cronenberg and starring Viggo Mortensen, it tells the tale of a family man whose past catches up with him.
