The Help Remains Tops at the Box Office

Well, movie studios are suggesting that hurricane Irene did some major damage to the box office this weekend (by as much as $25 million worth in potential lost ticket sales), as many movie theaters were shut down in the East coast... Well, that and the release of films no one really wants to see. This might be the lowest weekend for ticket sales of the year, next to Superbowl weekend.

With that said, it was no surprise as The Help remained in the top spot at the box office... as newcomers Colombiana, Dont Be Afraid of the Dark, and Our Idiot Brother failed to move an audience and will pretty much will be forgotten by next weekend.

And, as if you care, Conan the Barbarian dropped almost 70% this weekend, pushing it into floppage territory as it reportedly cost $90 million to make and only made $16.6 million so far.
