Taken 2 Crushes the Box Office

Liam Neeson's ass-kicking flick Taken 2, easily took down the box office this weekend with $50 million, despite very, very bad reviews.  In other words, look out for a Taken 3. Taken 2 has also the highest debut in October for a PG-13 film.

Hotel Transylvania managed a strong second place with $26.4 million, and is partly the reason why Tim Burton's critically praised Frankenweenie only managed to muster up $11.5 million for a fifth place finish despite all of Disney's efforts.

So far, October is looking pretty strong compared to September.
