Weekend Box Office: Everyone Drinks, Nobody Wins

I think it’s safe to say Summer is officially over at the box office folks. After a dismal weekend of returns for new films like Conan the Barbarian and Fright Night, I, for one, am ready for the Fall onslaught of Oscar contenders. Although Fright Night was a real treat, and I’m disappointed it’s not getting the attention it deserves. There’s nary a glittery vamp in sight, I promise! Go see it!

A sampling of the Box Office (Box Office Mojo):

The Help with $20 Million

Planet of the Apes with $16 Million

Spy Kids with $12 Million

Conan the Barbarian with $10 Million

Fright Night with $8.3 Million

One Day with $5.1 Million
