Taken 2 is a hit. In its opening weekend the action-thriller sequel opened to an estimated $50 million dollars domestic. Compare that with the $24.7m that the first Taken movie grossed in its opening weekend back in 2009, and now the early results of Taken 2 look pretty damn good.
The first Taken went on to take in $150 million domestic, and Taken 2 should reach that same number if it holds to the average rule of thumb for grosses (the first weekend is roughly one-third of the movie's finished gross.) However, if Taken 2 doesn't drop much more than 50% next weekend, then it's likely that the film will go on to reach $200 million dollars domestic.
All of this is pretty much meaningless to thinking ahead about a Taken 3. That's now a guarantee.
Hotel Transylvania, that Adam Sandler CG toon of his, dropped from first to second this week ($26.3m new, $76m total.)
Pitch Perfect opened wide and saw it blossom into third place ($14.7m new, $21.6m total.)
Looper tumbled down two spots to #4 ($12.2m new, $40.3m total.)
Frankenweenie didn't do all that great, only managing a fifth place opening weekend result ($11.5m total.)
End of Watch is three weeks old but still performing well ($4.0m new, $32.8m total.)
Trouble With the Curve is now in seventh place ($3.8m new, $29.7m total.)
House at the End of the Street is at #8 with $3.7m in new ticket sales, and a total domestic gross of $27.5m.
The Master is at position #9 ($1.8m new, $12.3m total.)
And in tenth spot is Finding Nemo 3D ($1.5m new, $38.9m total.)
