‘Taken 2’ Takes Second Week At Box Office

Taken 2Box office revenues soared 58 percent over a year ago thanks to a handful of films that overperformed, led by Liam Neeson action pic Taken 2 and Ben Affleck’s critical darling Argo.

Taken 2 grossed $22.5 million from 3,706 theaters in its second weekend to stay at No. 1. An unqualified hit, the pic has now earned $86.8 million domestically and $132.8 million internationally for a worldwide total of $219.6 million — just shy of the $226.8 million earned by the first Taken in its entire run.
