Friday Box Office – THE HELP and RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Stay on Top

     August 20, 2011


None of this week’s new offerings were able to seize the top box office slots from a pair of overperforming holdovers on Friday.  The Help came in on top with $5.8 million, a mere 24% decline from last Friday.  The impressive hold bumped Rise of the Apes, champion of the last two Fridays, down to second with $4.7 million.  We finally get to the new movies in third place: Spy Kids: All the Time in the World opened to just $4.0 million from 3,295 locations; Conan the Barbarian dipped under the $4 million threshold for $3.7 million from 3,015 locations.  Fright Night rounds out the top five, earning $3.1 million from 3,114 locations.  Check back tomorrow for the weekend totals.
