‘Help’ Moves Upstairs With $20.5M, No. 1 Weekend

View Comments

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Help” continues to clean up at the box office, taking over the No. 1 spot with $20.5 million in its second weekend.

The drama about Southern black maids had debuted in second-place a week earlier. “The Help” raised its domestic total to $71.8 million and bumped “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which slipped to No. 2 with $16.3 million after two weekends at the top.

A rush of new movies had weak openings: the family sequel “Spy Kids: All the Time in the World” at No. 3 with $12 million; the action remake “Conan the Barbarian” at No. 4 with $10 million; the horror remake “Fright Night” at No. 5 with $8.3 million; and the literary adaptation “One Day” at No. 9 with $5.1 million.
