LONDON (Reuters) - Science fiction thriller “Jumper” held on to top spot at the box office for a second week, adding another 1.51 million pounds to its take, according to Screen International on Tuesday.

The story of Hayden Christensen as the man who can teleport himself anywhere at any time has now taken 5.89 million pounds in its UK run.

New at two was “Be Kind Rewind” with Jack Black and Mos Def trying to cover up their disastrous wiping of a video store’s stock by re-filming the movies with themselves as stars.

Coming in at three was Sylvester Stallone as co-writer, director and star of “Rambo,” the fourth sequel of the action hero series, with the ex-Green Beret this time on a rescue mission in Burma.

Down one place at four was “Juno” with Ellen Page as a teenager coping with pregnancy, while “National Treasure: Book of Secrets,” with Nicolas Cage trying to clear his ancestor of murdering Abraham Lincoln, was down three at five.

At six, down from four was the story of a boy, a large pet and Loch Ness in “The Water Horse” while this week’s big Oscar winner, the ultra-violent tale of a drugs deal gone wrong, “There Will be Blood,” was unchanged at seven.

Down two places at eight was “The Bucket List” with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as two terminal cancer patients discussing life and fate on a farewell world trip.

Monster movie “Cloverfield” was down four places at nine while “Alvin and the Chipmunks” was back up two places to 10.
