(NEW YORK) -- The Help, the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling novel, earned $5.5 million Wednesday in its first day of release, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Help will be joined at the box office Friday by three other new releases:
-- Final Destination 5: The plot will sound familiar to fans of the series: a man on his way to a corporate retreat has a premonition that he and some friends will die in a bridge collapse. They escape the tragedy but are subsequently stalked by death. Nicholas D'Agosto, Miles Fisher and Emma Bell also star in this horror flick, which is screening in 3D. Rated R.
-- 30 Minutes or Less: A pizza delivery guy is kidnapped by a pair of criminals who strap a bomb on him and force him to rob a bank. Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson and Aziz Ansari also star in this comedy. Rated R.
-- Glee: The 3D Concert Movie: The film captures the Glee cast's performances of "Don't Stop Believin'," "Raise Your Glass" and other songs from their concert tour earlier this year. Rated PG.
