Liam Neeson stars in the final of the Taken trilogy in the new film topping the sales charts in the UK this week.

Tak3n was released in UK cinemas on January 9th 2015 where it made its debut at the top of the box office with a very decent weekend gross of £6.7 million.

It remained at the top the following week and spend a total of 6 weeks on the top 15 making a sharp steady decline.

The film took a total of £17.4 million and is the 225th highest grossing film in the UK, in America is grossed $325 million and is the US 295th highest grosser of all time.

Kingsman The Secret Service falls just a single place to number 2 this week after a single week at the top.

Also new this week is: Football documentary Gascoigne about the famed footballing legend at number 4 and hard hitting drama Selma at number 10.

Disney hold on to the top spot this week with their latest animated big screen movie Big Hero 6, and in a repeat of last week it only just out grosses Kingsman The Secret Service which holds at 2.

Another £2.5 million over the weekend sees the Hero 6's UK gross rise to £7.5 million from it's 11 days of release, including preview screenings.

Interestingly it was the weekend which gave Hero 6 the top spot, looking at the chart for the full week, Kingsman takes the top spot by nearly a million pound.

Highest new film of the week is from the Aardman animated studio, Shaun The Sheep Movie enters at number 4.

Shaun takes ££2 million for the weekend, not the numbers that Wallace and Gromit are used to but it's up there with other Aardman films.

Also new on the UK box office are: Jupiter Ascending from the Wachowski siblings at 4 and Selma at number 6.

Taken is now a trilogy of films and this the third in that trilogy, and apparently the last, takes the US top spot at the box office with ease this weekend.

Tak3n, which I don't think it will be called but will call it for now took $40.4 million at the North American box office, thats slightly less than part 2 but double that of 2009's original hit.

The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies which was the top film last week falls right down to number 4 this week.

Selma climbs to number 2 this week as it goes on general release and Into The Wood is at 3.

Taken 3 was the only new release this week.
