So it's that time of the week when I talk about the weekend's box office in it' entirety, so pay attention. This weekend was actually quite a good one, especially for Taken 2 which grossed an impressive total of $50 million, which I think is one of the strongest openings since the Dark Knight.

The first taken was awesome and I watched it so many times, not only because the mother and the daughter was super hot, but also because the action was intense and on point. It had a great plot complimented by great acting, causing it to gross $145 million domestic and $226 million international.


The second taken seems to be on its way to much higher total, especially from its excellent opening weekend. Taken 2 grossed $1.5 million in the midnight showings in 2036 locations, which was the highest since the Dark Knight Rises. It went on to make 18.5 million on its opening day, $19 million on Saturday and in total grossed $50 million for the weekend.


Taken 2 topped the box office over Hotel Transylvania.
