Taken 2 beats the box office again

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Sunday, October 14, 2012

For the second weekend in a row Taken 2 is the #1 movie at the box office. With a modest drop of 54% and $22.5 million dollars in new ticket sales, Taken 2's total North American gross now stands at $86.7 million dollars.

Compared with the first Taken, Taken 2 is still $35 million bucks away from besting the first movie's B.O. However, the film's international grosses have been higher than with the first Taken, and as such it' already into the black.

Ben Affleck has his new movie Argo open this weekend, and it did rather well. Argo opened with $20.1m and as such falls neatly into spot #2.

And in third position i the new scary movie Sinister starring Ethan Hawke. Maybe you might think that being in #3 isn't too bad, and with $18.2m in revenue you'd be right. However, what you probably didn't know was that Sinister only wound up costing $3 million dollars to make. Even with a modest advertising budget (let's say somewhere between $8m to $10m), Sinister has recouped its investment and then some for its owners. And we're still two weeks out from Halloween!

Hotel Transylvania fell back two spots to #4 ($17.3m new, $102.2m total).

The new Kevin James comedy film Here Comes the Boom didn't go boom with audiences, debuting at #5 with $12,000,000.

Pitch Perfect dropped three spots to #6 ($9.3 new, $36m total.)

Tim Burton and his Frankenweenie aren't doing so well, tumbling down two spots to #7 after just 2 weeks out ($7m new, $22m total.)

Looper, however, is doing better business three weeks into it (#8, $6.3m new, $51.4m total.)

The real turkey this week was Seven Psychopaths. Even with Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson in it, the best it could do in its opening weekend was #9 and just $4.2m.

Emma Watson's post-Harry Potter role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower has been getting good reviews. As Summit expanded the amount of screens the comedy-drama played on this weekend, it rose a single spot to #10 ($2.1m new, $6.1m total.)

Pretty shortly there will be a slew of new horror movies out to capitalize on the Halloween time of year. We still most likely have a couple of more years of annual Paranormal Activity releases before that fad had run its course...
