The Help Wins the Box Office in Its Second Week

Box Office: The Help Needs No Aid

The Help cleaned up against the competition this week, rising to the number one box-office spot during its second week in release with $20.4 million. The Help is only the second film this year — the first being True Grit in January — to move up to a number one spot after debuting lower. Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which held the number one spot for the previous two weeks, slipped to second place with $16.3 million.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D came in third with $12 million during its opening weekend, the worst opening that a film in the Spy Kids franchise has ever seen. Conan the Barbarian also saw a weak debut at fourth place with $10 million, followed by The Smurfs, which hung on to a top five spot with $8 million. Newcomer Fright Night had a poor showing, taking in just $7.9 million and landing in sixth.
