Initial estimates range for the opening weekend range from $15 million to $20 million.
Paramount’s “The Devil Inside” grossed $2 million in its late night shows and went on to gross $38 million in the first weekend of 2012.
Cold weather in the East impacted many theaters, most notably in Boston and New York, according to Paramount.
