You Rate the New Releases: 'Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,' 'Our Idiot Brother' and 'Colombiana'

It was a rough weekend at the box office, and an even rougher weekend along the east coast as Hurricane Irene left her mark and subsequently forced millions to stay indoors. As such, that allowed The Help to win yet another weekend at the box office, snagging $14.3 million, which was enough to keep it ahead of new releases like Colombiana ($10.3 million), which took second place, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark ($8.69 million), which took third, and Our Idiot Brother ($6.59 million), which took fifth. Rise of the Planet of the Apes did manage to squeeze into the party with $8.65 million and a fourth place finish.

So even though many of you stayed home this weekend, there were still a bunch of you out taking in the latest Hollywood had to offer. If you were one of those moviegoers in theaters over the weekend, sound off below in our polls and let us know in the comments which of the new releases you liked best. According to the box office, you couldn’t resist Zoe Saldana kicking butt, though maybe Paul Rudd as a lovable idiot turned out to be your favorite. Let us know!
