Hurricane Irene Puts Damper on Box Office, 'The Help' Finishes Top

Comstock Images/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Hurricane Irene battered the north eastern part of the U.S. over the weekend, and in the process also dealt a blow to the box office numbers, as movie lovers were forced to stay indoors.

The Help managed to top the weekend box office numbers, garnering and estimated $14.3 million in its third week.

Coming in second, was Columbiana, which opened with an estimated take of $10.3 million.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes ($9 million), Don't Be Afraid of the Dark ($8.7 million) and Our Idiot Brother ($6.6 million) round out the weekend's top five at the box office, in that order.
