Box Office: Audiences Taken With Taken


Liam Neeson's thriller Taken scored the top spot at the box office this weekend, which according to Variety, proves that "male-driven pics can open successfully on Super Bowl weekend." Last year Miley Cyrus brought her magic to the big screen over Super Bowl weekend and broke records.

Meanwhile, Paul Blart: Mall Cop continues to do well and dropped to the No. 2 spot after two weeks in first place. People love this movie! Elizabeth Banks's horror flick, The Uninvited, came in No. 3 followed by Hotel for Dogs and Gran Torino.

Finally, New in Town, the romantic comedy starring Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. had a disappointing (though not unexpected) debut at No. 8, only earning an estimated $6.8 million.

I've heard good things too and I'd love to see it. Although, Gruaig_rua, I thought the same thing about casting Maggie Grace in that role...she seems/looks too old to be playing a teenage girl.

I definitely recommend seeing Taken at night with a big audience - everyone was cheering and applauding at our show. It was great. It wouldn't be much fun without a crowd.

Luc Besson + Liam Neeson + Shannon = bound to be a good combination.

I just wanted to see Liam Neeson run around and kick some butt. Well worth the price of admission, even if I did have to sit through a Crank 2 trailer.

I liked Taken alot! And I agree with gruaig_rua, but she didn't look too bad trying turn the hands of time back.

I hated that Maggie Grace played a 17 year old. She's 25 for crying out loud!

The one thing that really bugged me about Taken was the beginning bits where he's basically berated by everyone for being a terrible father. I really hate that storyline for some reason.

I saw the previews this weekend and wondered it if would be good. And I love Liam, so I'll probably end up seeing it either way. Gran Torino is another one I've got on the list too!I could care less about New In Town. Renee is just not one of my favorite actresses to watch.
