Unknown Takes First Place at the Box Office in Its Opening Weekend

Unknown Makes Itself Known at the Box Office

Audiences wanted to unravel the mystery of Unknown over Presidents' Day weekend. The thriller, starring Liam Neeson and January Jones, topped the box office with $21.8 million, while I Am Number Four, another action-packed new release, trailed behind it in second place with $19.5 million.

Gnomeo and Juliet came in the third spot, as it did last weekend, with $19.4 million, beating out last week's box office champion, Just Go With It, which pulled in $18.2 million. Finally, fifth place was taken by Martin Lawrence's comedy Big Mommas: Like Father Like Son with $17 million. Surprisingly, it edged out Justin Bieber's documentary Never Say Never, which was so close to the top spot at the box office last weekend, but only charted in sixth place this week.
