Taken 2 Takes Top Spot at Box Office

By Daniel Gates



Liam Neeson has a lot to be proud of these days.

The actor’s action sequel Taken 2 won the weekend box office title with $50 million.

That sum easily secures the top spot over last week’s champ Hotel Transylvania, which took second place with $26.3 million.

Nabbing third was college a cappella group comedy Pitch Perfect with $14.7 million in ticket sales.

Time travel flick Looper and animated, kid-friendly horror homage Frankenweenie came in fourth and fifth places with $12.2 million and $11.5 million, respectively.

Rounding out the Top 10 were the Jake Gyllenhaal cop drama End of Watch ($4 million), the Clint Eastwood baseball movie Trouble with the Curve ($3.9 million), the Jennifer Lawrence thriller House at the End of the Street ($3.7 million), The Master ($1.8 million) and the re-release of Finding Nemo ($1.6 million).
