WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Help rises to the top of the chart with 20.5 million, powered by the book's fans, some racial contoversy and Disney marketing.  Not many summer dramas do well; this one has racked up 71.8 million domestic against a 25 million budget in a little over two weeks. (I wrote last week this could be a phemon; looking more like it today.)  Rise of the Planet of the Apes sinks just a notch to second with 16.3 million; the 93 million reboot prequel has now taken in 133.8 million domestic, with close to another 100 million overseas. Spy Kids: All the Time in the World is third with 12 million, the lowest opening ever for this franchise; even so, with a mere 27 million budget, most of the pain here will be felt by the audience.  The Conan reboot opens in fourth with 10 million against a 90 million budget -- Ouch!  The Smurfs round out the Top 5 with an estmated 8 million, though the debut of the Fright Night remake's estimated 7.9 million may result in a flip when the final figures are in.  Kinda sad, as Fright Night got shockingly good reviews for a remake of an 80s horror classic.  One hopes good buzz turns into legs, but the studio may be kicking itself for not waiting amonth or so on this one.
