Hurricane knocks down box office attendance
The Help continued to surge at the box office this weekend, but Hurricane Irene still did some serious damage to overall movie attendance.
The Help debuted behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes but has since been No. 1 for two straight weekends. In its third weekend, it grossed $14.3 million, raising its total to $96.6 million.
About 1,000 movie theaters closed at some point because of Irene. Three new movies struggled, with Colombiana faring the best at $10.3 million. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark collected $8.7 million, and Our Idiot Brother $6.6 million. "Not only were there closures due to the weather, but people were just not leaving their homes," said Rory Bruer, distribution president for Sony, which released Colombiana. "I'd say business was off upward of 20 percent."
