Liam Neeson's thriller Taken was number 1 at the box office this weekend, earning $24.6 million. That was a surprise since, historically, the target audience -- young men -- don't go to the movies Super Bowl weekend.
It's the second biggest opening for that weekend, behind last year's Miley Cyrus Hannah Montana concert film which earned $31.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop continued to pull customers earning $14 for a total of $83.4 million since it opened.
The Uninvited debuted with a weakish $10.5 million while Hotel For Dogs kept surprising with $8.7 million for a total so far of $48 million.
Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino won fifth place with $8.6 million for a total of $100.5 million.
