Dance drama holds US box office 1/23/2007
Urban dance drama Stomp the Yard held the top spot at the US and Canada box office, as two Golden Globe winners re-entered the chart.
Films Pan''s Labyrinth and The Queen return to the top ten at seven and eight respectively.

Stomp earned $13.3m (£6.7m) over the weekend, followed by Night at the Museum with $13m (£6.5m).

Horror film The Hitcher, the weekend''s sole new wide release, opened at number four with $8.2m (£4.1m).

The movie, a remake of the 1986 cult horror starring Rutger Hauer, also features Sean Bean in the villainous title role.

Stomp the Yard stars Columbus Short as a raw but talented dancer who tries to win a girl''s affections by entering a "stepping" competition.

Stepping is a form of dance popular chiefly in African-American schools and neighbourhoods in the US.
