Weekend Box Office: ‘Contagion’ Takes Top Spot from ‘The Help’

It took a global epidemic to do it, but ‘The Help’ has finally been knocked out of the number one spot at the box office after three weeks at the top of the list.

The Steven Soderbergh-directed ‘Contagion,’ about a deadly and fast-spreading disease and the panic it causes, earned $23.1 million at theaters in its first week of release, relegating ‘The Help’ to a runner-up status. The mixed-martial arts action flick, ‘Warrior,’ came in third during its debut week, with ‘The Debt’ and ‘Columbiana’ rounding out the top five.

New Movie Releases: ‘Apollo 18,’ ‘The Debt,’ and ‘Shark Night 3D’ [VIDEOS]

Three very different films will bow this weekend in theaters nationwide.

The sci-fi/fantasy thriller ‘Apollo 18‘ uses a faux-documentary style to explore a covert trip to the moon that reveals disturbing new life forms, while Helen Mirren’s ‘The Debt‘ sees three former Mossad agents haunted by a dangerous secret mission from 30 years prior, and horror-flick ‘Shark Night 3D‘ features seven vacationers — most of whom will presumably become food — encountering shark-infested waters.

New Movie Releases: ‘Final Destination 5,’ ‘The Help’ and More [VIDEOS]

In what has ironically turned out to be the franchise that just won’t die, ‘Final Destination 5′ opens in theaters Friday, promising more gore, more violence and, yes, more death.

If you’re sick of the franchise, or if you just prefer something lighter, there are two comedies brand-new to choose from this weekend. One is the R-Rated ’30 Minutes or Less,’ which re-teams Oscar-nominated actor Jesse Eisenberg (‘The Social Network’) with his ‘Zombieland’ director, Ruben Fleischer, in this flick about a bank robbery gone horribly wrong.

Or, if you’re feeling a bit more musically inclined, there’s always ‘Glee Live! 3-D!’, the latest incarnation from Fox’s uber-successful TV series.
