The Help tops the US box office
After hogging top spot for the last two weeks, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was toppled by Disney’s The Help this weekend.Bringing in just shy of $20.5 million, The Help was down just 21% on last weekend, suggesting it should have the legs to stick around the upper echelons of the box office chart for a while to come.The take leaves the film’s overall gross at $71.8 million and it looks a good bet to break the $100 million mark in the coming weeks. ROTPOTA has already reached that milestone, with a $16.3 million weekend taking its overall tally to $133.8 million.
So, how did Conan The Barbarian, Spy Kids 4 and Fright Night fare?
