Apes Rule Box Office Again

The Apes, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, that is... took the top of the box office for the second weekend in a row with over $27 million. As for the newcoming movies, it was pretty much a topsy-turvy battle for second place with The Help surprisingly claiming that spot with just above $25 million. Final Destination 5 ($18.4 million), 30 Minutes or Less ($13 million) and Glee: The 3D Concert Move ($5.7 million) all fell just under expectations. Glee's lackluster performance was the reason it didn't even place in the top ten this week... ouch! On the bright side, it only reportedly cost, $9 million to make.

The Smurfs, on the other hand, is still holding strong, just beating out 30 Minutes or Less for 4th place, helping it pass the $100 million mark.

In other news, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is the highest grossing movie of the year domestically($357 million) and overseas ($829 million). It is also the third highest grossing movie off all time worldwide($1.186 billion), sitting just ahead of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ($1.119 billion), and behind James Cameron's Titanic ($1.843 billion) and Avatar ($2.782 billion). Domestically, Deathly Hallows sits in 17th place on the all time list, but look for it to climb past Jurassic Park ($357.1) tomorrow.
