'Taken' Takes Top Chart Spots20 May, 2009 By: Thomas K. Arnold
No surprise, folks — 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment's Taken took the top spot on the home video sales as well as rental charts its first week in stores, blowing away the competition. The film, with a $144.6 million box office pedigree, had sported Titanic-like legs since its early February 2009 theatrical bow. Here's the complete story. My hunch is this film is going to have long legs on home video as well. My oldest son, Justin, has been asking for this film for months; apparently it's not just a hit with adults, but also with the teen set.
