In this week’s podcast, Binh and I discuss “American Sniper’s” incredible hold after last week’s record-breaking opening.

Liam Neeson in "Tak3n"
Here’s the latest podcast, where I pronounce every word with a "th" or a "t" in it as a "d." Still, Binh thinks this one is pretty good. To the surprise of no one, “Tak3n” was the top film. I pegged it in the $35-$40M range, and it came in at the higher end of that.
