Liam Neeson soared to the top of the North American box office with his plane thriller "Non-Stop," raking in $28.9 million on Oscars weekend, industry figures showed Monday.
Neeson pipped another new entry, "Son of God," into second, according to box office tracker Exhibitor Relations, which said the controversial film about the life and times of Jesus pulled in $25.6 million.
"The Lego Movie," the Warner Bros animated film, was relegated to third after a short stint in prime position. It earned $20.8 million for a total $209.1 million since opening last month.
