But only one actress went to No. 1 this summer—and she went there twice: Emma Stone.
Stone's The Help took advantage of its good buzz and weak competition to score a second-straight win at the weekend box office. Disney expects the Civil Rights-era drama to break $100 million domestically by the middle of the week.
Of all the summer hits, The Help is the only No. 1 that was led by a female star. It's also the only No. 1 to go No. 1 after opening No. 2.
Overall, the box office was wrecked by Hurricane Irene. Ticket sales were down a whopping 23 percent from last weekend. One studio exec told us the East Coast-ravaging Irene was a "pretty significant" factor.
"Many theaters closed or were dead even if they remained open," another exec, Bob Berney, distribution president for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark's FilmDistrict, said in a statement.
Anne Hathaway's One Day dropped from the Top 10 after a stay of just one weekend. So far, the reputedly $15 million movie has grossed $9.4 million domestically.
30 Minutes or Less ($31.7 million overall domestically) and Final Destination 5 ($37.8 million overall domestically) also fell from the standings, after stays of two weekends each.
