After its opening weekend even though rotten tomatoes viewers gave it a sad 20% vote the film bounced back hard. The action film earned $50 million this weekend according to early studio projections. Furthermore it went ahead and won the weekend at North American theaters. The sequel grossed about $25 million more than the original “Taken” did during its opening weekend in 2008. If that conveniently round number holds, Taken 2 will be the first movie to hit the $50-million weekend mark since The Dark Knight Rises opened in July.
Moreover according to The Hollywood Reporter “Liam Neeson’s Taken 2 grossed $50 million in the US and $55 million overseas.”
