Five new releases weren't enough to dethrone Taken 2 from the top of the box office.
The action film held onto the No. 1 spot, grossing an estimated $22.5 million in its second week of release, according to Box Office Mojo. Ben Affleck's third directorial effort, Argo, led the weekend's new films, to land at No. 2 with an opening-weekend bounty of $20.1 million. Following in third place, horror movie Sinister scared up $18.25 million.
At No. 6, Pitch Perfect scored $9.3 million, and Frankenweenie dug up $7.01 million to take seventh.
