BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: ‘Taken’ Takes the Top Spot with $24.6 Million

Kevin James' Paul Blart: Mall Cop has finally relinquished his choke hold on the American box office, graciously stepping down to the number two spot with $14 million in its third weekend, so that Liam Neeson's kidnapping thriller Taken could reign supreme. Despite little fanfare, this Luc Besson production managed to climb above the rest, nabbing a decent $24.6 million on this Super Bowl weekend. Don't feel too sorry for Blart, though. So far, James' security guard comedy has racked in $83.3 million and will likely top out at over $100 million in the next few weeks.

Two other brand new films failed to attract much traffic at this weekend's box office. Dreamworks' ghost thriller The Uninvited pulled in all of the tween girls to the tune of $10.5 million, which dropped the spooky drama into the number three spot. And the Renee Zellweger comedy New in Town took a nosedive right out of the gate, skidding into the number eight spot with a measly $6.7 million.

SET VISIT: We Travel to Vancouver for the Horrors of ‘The Uninvited’

Brothers Thomas and Charles Guard have directed an American adaptation of Kim Ji-Woon's Korean ghost thriller A Tale of Two Sisters entitled The Uninvited. This time out, the story revolves around institutionalized sister Anna (Emily Browning) as she returns home following the tragic and untimely death of her mother. Her emotional recovery is stunted when she learns that her father (David Strathairn) has fallen for her mother's former caretaker (Elizabeth Banks). After a visit from the mother's ghost, Anna and her sister (Arielle Kebbel) attempt to convince their dad that the night nurse is up to no good. What should be a happy family reunion between a father and his two daughters soon turns into a lethal battle of the wills between an abusive stepmother and her adoptive children.

http://movieweb.com/movie/the-uninvited/ The story is actually based on an old Joseon Dynasty folktale, and has been adapted to film many times in the past. The Guard Brothers began principle photography on their personalized version of this tale July 21st, 2007. Midway through shooting, we were invited out to Bowen Island for a close-up look at the production. Heading out of Thunderbird Marina on a water taxi, we were promised a sneak peek at a couple of exciting scenes being shot that particular day. They were to include a steamy look at Elizabeth Banks in the shower and a peek at Emily Browning in her swimsuit. This sounded almost too good to be true. Alas, when we arrived at the shooting location, we were informed of a change of plans. Both the bathroom shower and the lakeside-swimming hole were now closed sets. Instead, we were offered an exclusive tour of the film's retrofitted house. That's right.
