Uh-oh!

It looks as though Liam Neeson's bad-ass reign over the weekend box office may soon be challenged by Ben Affleck!

The 60-year-old action star's latest flick, Taken 2, remained in the number one spot for the second weekend in a row, making $22.5 million and bringing its domestic total to $86.8 million!

However, unlike last week when it made over $20 million more than the number two flick, Hotel Transylvania, Affleck's Argo pulled a CLOSE SECOND this time around with $20.1 million!

And even THAT was closely followed by Ethan Hawke's new fright-tastic flick, Sinister, which made $18.3 million!

All right!

We're excited to see what will pull ahead - and what will lose it steam - by this time next week!

With numbers this close, it really could be ANY OF THEM!

Ch-ch-check out the full box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Taken 2 ($22,500,000)
Argo ($20,120,000)
Sinister ($18,250,000)
Hotel Transylvania ($17,300,000)
Here Comes the Boom ($12,000,000)
Pitch Perfect ($9,336,000)
Frankenweenie ($7,014,000)
Looper ($6,300,000)
Seven Psychopaths ($4,275,000)
The Perks of Being a Wallflower ($2,166,000)

    Love him but thought the movie was disgusting. We left halfway through–but I guess that counts as ticket sales, tho, so congrats.

    Sigh - another month and a half to go at least until the good fall movies start being released.

    Sinister was sooo good. I had been looking forward to it since the previews came out and it definitely delivered. No more horror movies for a while though..too scary..I need a nice Christmas movie or a comedy!

    LOL just proves idiots will pay to watch any old crap. Taken 2 has horrendous reviews yet they still flock there. Hope Liam enjoys the paycheck and that it compensates for selling your soul.
