Taken 2 Holds on to Second Weekend


Yup, the Liam Neeson ass-kicking flick, Taken 2, managed to squeeze out a first place finish for the second weekend in a row with about $22.5 million. It has now made $86.8 million domestically and just about $220 million worldwide.  The first Taken made $226.8 million worldwide in it's entirety... so it's safe to say Taken 2 will surpass that.

Ben Affleck's retro-political-thriller, Argo, came in a close second with just above $20 million, aided by strong positive reviews.  And just behind that, the horror flick, Sinister, did way above expectations with an $18 million debut for a third place finish.
