LONDON (Reuters) - “The Incredible Hulk” clung on to top spot at the box office, fighting off a renewed challenge from Indiana Jones, Screen International said on Wednesday.

The latest “Hulk” film, starring Edward Norton as the scientist who turns big and green in a rage, added 1.8 million pounds for a 6.3 million pound fortnight’s total.

“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, with Harrison Ford back in the title role after nearly two decades, was back up to second spot after slipping last week to third.

It swapped places with the other blockbuster currently showing in Britain, “Sex and the City,” the film version of the hit TV series, featuring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.

New at four was “Adulthood,” the sequel to “Kidulthood” of 2006 in which Noel Clarke returns as Sam, trying to stay out of trouble after his jail spell.

Down one place at five was apocalyptic thriller “The Happening”, with Mark Wahlberg while spoof comedy “Superhero Movie”, starring Leslie Nielsen and Pamela Anderson, slipped a place to six.

Horror flick “Teeth” rode in at seven on the back of one of man’s most basic primal fears, the vagina that bites, while crime drama “Gone Baby Gone”, directed by Ben Affleck, slipped two to eighth.

Dylan Thomas bioflick “The Edge of Love” with Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller was new at nine while “The Ruins” made its debut at 10 with a tale of college students and Mayan horror in Mexico
