Taken 2, the second sequel to the first Fox Taken movie by Liam Neeson. He is back again with fast and thrilling action that will keep you glued to your seat. The movie rotates around the kidnapping of his wife and direct attack on his family by the same bandits whose families and friends he took out in the first sequel. These men are seeking revenge and are blood thirsty, but they are picking on the wrong man’s family. The movie just debuted in cinemas last week and is looking at a high gross at the box office.
Liam Neeson and ‘Taken 2″ are looking at a $48 million weekend after blasting past their box office rivals Friday and rolling to a first-day total of $18.6 million.
"Listen to me carefully, you are about to be taken...."
“Taken 2” is proving impervious to bad reviews, easily topping the $25 million opening weekend of the original film. First-day audiences at 3,661 locations — it averaged $5,020 per-screen — gave it a “B+” CinemaScore. The biggest October opening on record is the $52.6 million rung up by “Paranormal Activity 3” last year.
Last week’s No. 1 movie, Sony’s “Hotel Transylvania,” held impressively. With $6.5 million from 3,352 theaters Friday, it’s on track to finish second with around $25 million. It looks like families opted for “Hotel Transylvania” at the expense of Disney’s “Frankenweenie.”
