Long Range Forecast: 'One For the Money,' 'Man On a Ledge' and 'The Grey'

Featured Stories - on December 03, 2011 by Phil Contrino

We've added One For the Money, Man On a Ledge and The Grey to the Long Range Forecast this week. All three films are set to open on January 27.

One For the Money represents a turning point for Katherine Heigl. After the disappointing performance of Killers it's obvious that her drawing power is beginning to decline. This one doesn't look like it will help her rebound.

Sam Worthington has starred in some huge blockbusters, but his ability to open a film on his own will be put to the test with Man On a Ledge. Unfortunately, the thriller looks a little too generic to break out.

The Grey represents the second release from Open Road. Star Liam Neeson is on fire after Taken and Unknown, so this one could end up becoming a sleeper hit. Keep an eye on it.

Check out our predictions for these films and others in the table below.
