The Help Helps The Labor Day Box Office Win Big

the-help-is-number-one-movie-labor-day-weekend.jpg

While (mostly) everybody was enjoying their three-day weekend in the U.S., the ladies of The Help helped out the Labor Day holiday by making it to the number one spot for the third week in the row.

The movie made $14.2 million, which was far better than any of the weekend's new releases.

Ouch.

Helen Mirren's thriller The Debt came in second place with $9.7 million while new releases Apollo 18 and Shark Night 3D finished in third and fourth places, with less than $0.1 million sales apart from each other.

It's safe to say that The Help is clearly a hit with a collective $118.6 million. Could it possibly become an Oscar contender too??

Here's the top six movies of the weekend:

1. The Help – $14.2 mil
2. The Debt – $9.7 mil
3. Apollo 18 – $8.7 mil
4. Shark Night 3D – $8.6 mil
5. Rise of the Planet of the Apes – $7.8
6. Colombiana – $7.4 mil

So, what did U see this weekend??

NASA Gets Their Panties In A Wad Over Apollo 18

Kind of like when the Church huffed and puffed over The Da Vinci Code, NASA wants the public to know the film Apollo 18 holds no ground in truth.

The film, which perpetuates the thought of government conspiracy and extraterrestrial nightmares, claims to hold footage leaked to the media revealing what really happened in 1972.

Apollo 18's trailer (watch above) reads:

In 1972, the United States sent two astronauts on a secret mission to the moon. Despite decades of denial by NASA and the Department of Defense, classified footage of the mission was leaked to the media.

But NASA's liaison for media, Bert Ulrich, sounds off:

Apollo 18 is not a documentary,. The film is a work of fiction, and we always knew that. We were minimally involved with this picture. We never even saw a rough cut. The idea of portraying the Apollo 18 mission as authentic is simply a marketing ploy. Perhaps a bit of a Blair Witch Project strategy to generate hype.

Okay, clearly the film isn't real, but films like these do raise certain questions.

Hmm, what do U think guys?
