You Rate the New Releases: 'Shark Night 3D,' 'Apollo 18' and 'The Debt'

Okay, so considering how I bet against The Help the past three weekends in a row and it came in first at the box office the past three weekends in a row, I’m just gonna go with The Help each week until something comes along that’s powerful enough to take that film down. It’s pretty insane how The Help has tackled competition over this long of a stretch, especially considering all the teen-related genre titles arriving in theaters.

Speaking of, both Shark Night and Apollo 18 stumbled at the box office with $8.64 and $8.7 million respectively (for 4th and 3rd place), while The Debt (rated highest by critics, with 78% over at Rotten Tomatoes) barely scraped together $9.6 million for second place behind The Help and its $14.2 million.
 
Do you think the critics (who slammed both Shark Night and Apollo 18) were right this week, or did you find a lot to like out of the two end-of-summer genre pictures? Sound off in our polls below (as well as the comments) with your thoughts on this past weekend’s movies.
