Winners of the Weekend Box Office Race- 8/22


Nobody won this weekend. It was a disappointing weekend for Hollywood. 'The Help' topped off the list with $20.5 million, but Hollywood should be embarrassed considering 'The Help is in its second week of release. This means that the box office gross is down 25% from last week.

What strikes me about this list is 'Conan the Barbarian.' It pulled in $10 million dollars in its first week, which would be okay if its budget weren't $90 million. Why did it cost so much? I guarantee you most people could not name one person involved with this project (unless they have access to Google). 'RotPotA' cost $93 million to make in comparison. Conan is a huge flop which is disappointing.

Here is the list without further a do.
