Box Office: Taken 3 has 2015’s first big opening

The January box office continued to do well with Liam Neeson’s return as special ops Bryan Mills in the third installment of his unlikely action franchise Taken 3 (20th Century Fox), co-starring Forest Whitaker, Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen, which opened like gangbusters with an estimated $40.4 million in 3,593 theaters. While that was down from the $49.5 million opening of the previous installment in October 2012, it was enough to be considered the second-biggest January opening ever behind last year’s Kevin Hart-Ice Cube action-comedy Ride Along.
