It seems I predicted correctly that Argo would push past Sinister. The estimates are in for the weekend.
1. Taken 2 $22,500,000
2. Argo $20,120,000
3. Sinister $18,250,000
I've included links to my favorite boxoffice reporting site, BoxOfficeMojo.
Friday's estimate for the weekend box office shows Taken 2 still fighting for the number 1 spot.
Taken 2: $7,000,000
Sinister opened number 1 on Friday, but is expected to come in second this weekend, with Taken 2 in 1st. Argo came in third Friday, and it's expected to come close to Sinister's estimated opening. We could even see Argo overtake Sinister if Argo picks up.
EARLY WEEKEND ESTIMATES
Taken 2: $22,000,000
Argo: $ 18,000,000
