As reported yesterday, Hurricane Irene, which turned out to be something of an underperformer as far as hurricanes go, still was a major factor in bringing down box office totals this weekend. Still Colombiana did well enough to come in at No.2 with $10.3 million. I'm guessimating that the film could have made another $2 - 4 million if it weren't for Irene.
And The Help, as expected, was still was the No.1 box office draw this week. Not even hurricanes or floods could keep people from seeing a film about the good old happy times down South not-so-long ago.
