Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: January 11th, 2015 Liam Neeson took the box office by storm yet again, while a few awards contenders made big moves. In at number 1 is Taken 3 (read our review) with $40.4 million. That may not be the best opening for a Taken film, but it’s easily the second biggest debut for a January new release, just barely behind last year’s Ride Along ($41 million). However, it’s worth noting that the Taken series has been trending downward over these last two films, despite stronger openings than the first.
