October 14, 2012
Liam Neeson's Taken 2 kicked box office butt, securing itself as the number one film in America for the second week running.
The action thriller took in a hefty $22 million, slightly ahead of Ben Affleck's highly anticipated political thriller Argo ($20 million) and scary movie Sinister ($18 million), which trailed behind at second and third place, respectively.
Adam Sandler and Selena Gomez's computer-animated flick Hotel Transylvania dropped to forth with $17 million in its third week, followed by Kevin James' new comedy Here Comes the Boom at $12 million.
