Taken Tries to Tackle Fans Away from Super Bowl
The list of films looking to lure viewers away from this weekend’s Super Bowl is led by Taken, a new thriller from Fox starring Liam Neeson that opens on more than 3,100 screens.
Also opening this weekend are The Uninvited, a remake from Paramount/DreamWorks of a Korean horror film, hitting about 2,300 screens; and the Renee Zellweger comedy New in Town, coming to around 1,900 screens courtesy of Lionsgate.
Those films will be looking to topple Paul Blart: Mall Cop, the Kevin James comedy that has topped the box office for two weeks straight and has taken in more than $68 million to date. Action film Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, last weekend’s second-place finisher, also will be in the hunt.
Expanding this week are Oscar nominees Milk, The Reader, The Wrestler and foreign-language film The Class.
