*est. numbers


The Grey did pretty well for its opening weekend. It opened up with around $20,000,000, beating out Underworld and Red Tails. I guess seeing Liam Neeson do a portrayal of Bear Grylls taking on the wild excited people enough to see his movie.

I’m a little surprised that Red Tails fell to #4 already. I’m guessing that anyone that was hyped to see it probably saw it opening weekend. Let’s see how much longer it can star relevant and stay in the top 5.
