by | 12 November 2008

The 22nd James Bond film Quantum of Solace has held the number one spot in the UK and Ireland box office chart for a second week.

The thriller - which has received a mixed critical response - took £9.2 million in its second week on release to remain at the summit.

Starring Daniel Craig, Quantum of Solace sees 007 on the hunt for those behind the death of his former love Vesper Lynd (Eva Green).

High School Musical 3: Senior Year remained in second while the highest new entry was cop drama Pride and Glory at number five.
