    Weekend Box Office: 'The Help' Defeats Tepid Newcomers And Hurricane Season For Another Week At #1

    Usually, studios will look for any possible reason to blame the weather for a film’s poor box office showing. Heat waves only mean audiences will seek the air conditioning of a theater, at least when something exciting is playing. And people will withstand non-apocalyptic snowstorms simply to get away from the cold while enjoying the blockbuster of their choice. But there aren’t a whole lot of options when almost half of a movie’s proposed locations are under siege by a vicious hurricane.

    The Weinstein Company Picks Up Madonna's 'W.E.,' Official Synopsis Revealed

    We'll give it up to Madge. She's certainly ambitious. After whiffing pretty hard on her directorial debut "Filth & Wisdom" she raised the stakes for her sophomore effort, the dual narrative "W.E." and now she's got some major players to help get it out there.
