Box Office Top 10: The Apes Keep Rising
Another weekend, another win for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. So for those of you keeping track, it only took 10 years for people to get over how terrible the last one was (seriously, what happened at the end? Its been 10 years and I still don’t know)
The Help finished strong in 2nd place, and is getting some early Oscar buzz for several of the movie’s stars. I don’t know, I think if they would have included a few scenes from Forrest Gump (where he’s singing with the gospel choir) and advertised it as a Tom Hanks cameo, that might have put them over the top. Then again, wasn’t Larry Crowne one big Tom Hanks cameo?
Final Destination 5 managed to grab 3rd place, and even scored a 54% on Rotten Tomatoes. Admit it, that’s about 40% higher than you would have guessed, right? I mean it’s the 5TH ONE…
Here’s the rest of the Top 10:
(not pictured: Glee 3D which tanked its way into 11th…maybe if Ryan Murphy wasn’t so humble and down to earth it would have done better)
