Taken was a surprise hit at the American box-office during Super Bowl weekend, as the Liam Neeson starring action flick coined an estimated $24.6 million, to easily top the charts. Two other new entries, The Uninvited and New in Town, did average and terrible business with $10.5 and $6.7 million respectively. Taken opened here last year and did stellar coin at the Irish box-office also. Fox released the film, and are known for their excellent marketing campaigns; the haul is even more impressive when you consider the game would've stopped many a bloke hitting the flicks on Sunday night.
