Sex and the City has kept cinema goers hooked, topping the UK and Ireland box office chart for a second week running.

The film, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, took 3.1m, keeping Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in second place with 2.67m.

Despite mixed reviews, Superhero Movie, a spoof of Spiderman and Superman, was the highest new entry at three.

Two other new entries, Prom Night and Gone Baby Gone, took the fourth and fifth spots.

Ben Affleck's directorial debut Gone Baby Gone, a thriller about the abduction of a four-year-old, was originally postponed due to similarities to the Madeleine McCann case.
