The Grey Leads Pack at Box Office


(Open Road)

The Grey, the survival thriller starring Liam Neeson and a pack of wolves, is expected to win the weekend box office with approximately $18 million.

That total would put it ahead of One For The Money (starring Katherine Heigl) and last week’s champ, Underworld: Awakening, both of which are tracking toward $12 million in receipts.

Another holdover, Red Tails, is projected to take fourth place with $9 million.

Sam Worthington’s Man on a Ledge, meanwhile, is debuting to a tough fight for #5. Early estimates put it at $6.5 million, which is also the projection for Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, and not too far ahead of Contraband.

The Descendants, featuring an Oscar-nominated performance from George Clooney, is expected to take $5.5 million.

The chart rounds out with Beauty and the Beast 3D ($4.5 million) and Haywire ($3 million).
