Box office: 'The Grey' is a howling success with $6.5 million on Friday
"The Grey" is Open Roads Films' second ever release, so nabbing the top spot is pretty impressive. The Katherine Heigl star vehicle "One for the Money" nabbed the second place spot with $4.1 million. Last week's winner "Underworld Awakening" took in $3.4 million on Friday, putting it in third place and the George Lucas-helmed "Red Tails" grossed $2.8 million and a fourth place spot. "Man on a Ledge" grabbed the fifth with $2.5 million.
Rounding out the top 10, we have "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close," nominated for a best picture Oscar, grossing $2 million on Friday in sixth place. "Contraband" took seventh with $1.9. "The Descendants," which took in $1.7 million on Friday and eight place got a bump from all the Oscar buzz and it just expanded to 2,001 locations this weekend -- 1,441 more than last week. "Beauty and the Beast" in 3-D took ninth with a little over $1.2 million and in tenth place was "Haywire" with just under $1.2.
