The Help seemed relatively unfazed by Hurricane Irene over the weekend, while the three new nationwide releases Colombiana, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and Our Idiot Brother were blown away. The drama packed an estimated $14.3 million, down just 28 percent from last weekend, lifting its total to $96.6 million.
While last next week’s disappointments, Conan The Barbarian and Fright Night, continued their slide out of the top 5.
THIS WEEKEND’S TOP 5 AT THE BOX OFFICE:
|3.||Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark||$8.69M|
|4.||Rise of the Planet of the Apes||$8.65M|
|5.||Our Idiot Brother||$6.59M|
