Grabbing ahold of the top spot immediately upon its theatrical debut, "The Grey" finds itself situated atop the pack at the box office over the weekend of January 27-29, 2012.

The Liam Neeson fronted Alaskan-based action/adventure caper pulled in $6.5 million on opening day while forecasted to garner $17.6 million once opening weekend concludes.

Another newcomer earned itself the runner-up position, as the Katherine Heigl driven action/comedy movie "One for the Money" took home $4.1 million on Friday with a predicted weekend take of $11.3 million.

Rounding out the top five at the box office in estimated weekend totals are Kate Beckinsale's "Underworld: Awakening" ($10.4 million), followed by the George Lucas produced Tuskegee airmen adventure "Red Tails" ($9.6 million and Sam Worthington/Elizabeth Banks fronted film "Man on a Ledge" ($7.2 million).
