We wonder if Liam Neeson ever anticipated that at the age of 60, he would be bringing in this kind of money as an action star?!
Doesn't matter! Because it is one helluva REALITY at this point!
The actor's latest movie, Taken 2, made MASSIVE BANK this weekend by pulling in close to $50 million and becoming the third-largest debut for an October release EVER!
Not to mention it doubled what the original made in that time period!
Meanwhile, the only flick that came REMOTELY close to making that kind of money was Hotel Transylvania, and with $26.3 million in the number two spot, we think everyone can agree that it's a bit of a stretch!
And now that Pitch Perfect's release has gone wide, it came in third and pulled in $14.7 million!
