The Grey Looks to Win the Weekend


According to distributor Open Road, Joe Carnahan’s survival thriller The Grey, starring Liam Neeson, is looking to win the weekend, having grossed roughly $6.5 million on Friday on its way to somewhere between $17 and 18 million for the weekend.

Taking advantage of the Groupon discount ticket deal has helped boost interest in Lionsgate’s One for the Money, starring Katherine Heigl, which took second place Friday with $4.1 million on its way to about $11 to 12 million for the weekend.

Sam Worthington’s crime-thriller Man on a Ledge has fallen short of expectations, opening in fifth place Friday with a reported $2.4 million on its way to roughly $6 or 7 million its first weekend.
