‘Taken 2’ opened at number one with $50 million dollars, it’s the third best opening for a film in the month of October. The film has received plenty of negative reviews, but it seems like no matter what people wanted to see what the second part had to offer. The film earned past its budget and more than the original.
‘Hotel Transylvania’ dropped to number two with $26.3 million dollars. This is still a good figure for Sony, which apparently has no problem holding the throne in kids’ movies right now, because ‘Frankenweenie’ didn’t even become a threat.
The ‘Glee’ like movie ‘Pitch Perfect’ got to the third spot with $14.7 million dollars. It already had gotten an impressive spot in the box office with the limited release the week before, so certainly many were curious to see what this melodic comedy that has received such good ratings was about.
