Movies 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' Hangs on at No. 1 By Raphael Chestang 10:13 AM PDT, August 14, 2011 20th Century Fox 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' proved that its spectacular debut was no fluke, topping the box office again in its second weekend. The 'Apes' prequel narrowly passed 'The Help,' taking in $27 million while the Emma Stone comedy made $25.7 million in its weekend premiere. 'Final Destination 5' had a lively opening, pulling in $18.4 million, but '30 Minutes or Less' had less luck collecting $13 million. In possibly the biggest disappointment of the year, 'Glee: The 3D Concert Movie' grossed a feeble $5.7 million in its grand opening, leaving mixed perceptions about the popular show's dedicated fan base.
