Behold, the power of George Clooney. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor's latest movie, 'The Descendants,' is off to a strong start in limited release. Despite opening in only five theaters on Wednesday night, the film grossed $39,777, with an average of $7,955 per location. That might not seem like a whole lot of dough (particularly when you take into account the potential $125+ million opening of 'Breaking Dawn, Part I' this weekend), but it's pretty solid considering the number of theaters. To put it in perspective, 'J. Edgar' grossed $52,645 from seven theaters for an average $7,521 when it opened in limited release last Wednesday, which is just below the 'Descendants' haul. (Take that Leo!)
