Peter Berg is back. On Friday, the filmmaker's Navy SEALs drama, Lone Survivor , took in a stellar $14.4 million to top the North American box office, where it played especially well in America's heartland. In more good news for Universal, the patriotic-themed movie earned a coveted A+ CinemaScore. Lone Survivor is now expected to gross $37.7 million for the weekend -- the second best opening of all time for the month of January, after Cloverfield.
