UPDATE: Reek is the word...but "The Help" is a good movie with fine performances and "One Day" is nice change
of pace from the usual summer fare...
"The King's Speech" heads to Broadway in 2012 and "The Smurf's 2" gears up for next year, too.
WEEKEND BO RESULTS (estimate1. "The Help" - $20.4 million
2. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" - $16 million
3. "Spy Kids" 4" - $12 million
Notes: Going over the Friday report (below) we wer correct that "Spy Kids 4" would win with the new releases but it did reek for them. "The Help" wins and is gaining steam and will start Oscar buzzing now. This is one of the reason I take a few Mondays off this time of year as the box office goes to sleep and retools for the award season. I need a break, too.
"Spy Kids 4"
Notes: Why do I think "Spy Kids" 4" will beat "Conan"? Well, for one do we need a film about a late night host? Oh wait, this is just another retread of a movie. But wait again, so is "Spy Kids." Sure it is but look at the run away winners this summer. Fun and for kids, for the most part, even though "Harry" is for all and very good. I do not need another "Fright Night" either. Plus, when the kids get out of school, they
will want to see what film? We will see.
