Box Office: Anthony Hopkins has 'The Rite' stuff for no. 1 Friday

Winter weather in the Northeast may affect the overall box office numbers this weekend, but it wasn't enough to exorcise Anthony Hopkins' return to the box office Friday.  The legendary actor's devilishly themed new drama "The Rite" debuted to $5.3 million for what should be a $15 million weekend.  That's a bit below pre-release polling, but again, it appears the snow-socked East coast haven't returned to their regular moviegoing habits as of yet. In second place was Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher's "No Strings Attached."  Last weekend's no. 1 film found $4.4 million Friday.
