Still filling seats after its chart topping theatrical debut one week prior, "Taken 2" continued to reign at the box office while emerging as the top earner over the weekend of October 12-14, 2012.

The Olivier Megaton directed crime drama starring Liam Neeson as a retired CIA operative raked in $7.0 million on Friday and another $9.8 million on Saturday with an expected sophomore weekend total of $22.7 million being enough to top all other theatrical competitors.
