Who wants themselves a bit of Neeson? We do, we do cries the North American cinema audience. Taken 3 cost a relatively low $48m to produce and hit the charts at number 1 after a opening weekend of $40.4m. Fox will be delighted as its well ahead of predictions and comes off the back of a less than a well received sequel.
Biopic Selma was a distant second after it earned $11.2m following an extended opening. Stink pile Into the Woods is amazingly in third place with a weekend gross of $9.7m proving that anything is possible if you have a dream and the marketing budget of a major studio. I’ve got a feeling it’s opening big in the UK over the weekend. Are we really this starved for good family entertainment?
