“Unknown,” starring Liam
Neeson as a man who must reclaim his identity after finding it stolen when he
awakens from a coma, earned $21.8 million for its distributor Warner Bros. to
claim the No. 1 spot at U.S. and Canadian box offices.
Also in its first weekend in
theaters, science fiction action flick “I Am Number Four” landed at No. 2 with
$19.5 million in a near tie with animated family film “Gnomeo and Juliet,”
which earned $19.4 million for a scant drop of only 23 percent from last
Both those films were released
by Disney studios.
Ticket sales estimates could
change as the US is in the middle of a long holiday weekend for Monday's
Presidents Day holiday. Warner Bros. is a unit of Time Warner Inc. and Disney
is part of The Walt Disney Co.
