Never underestimate the help, people. Or The Help, for that matter, which braved Hurricane Irene and a bunch of weak openers (again) for another week at the top spot at the box office, earning a $14.3 million gross this weekend. At the number 2 spot is Columbiana, the latest action movie from the Luc Besson conveyor belt, which throat-chopped its way to a $10.3 million opening.

Don't Be Afraid Of This 'Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark' Trailer

The other two openers to make anything resembling a “splash” this weekend were Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and Our Idiot Brother. The former, a horror remake from producer Guillermo Del Toro, was in third place with an $8.7 million opening. The latter, which had lots on Paul Rudd to offer if we’d only just accept it, made it to 5th place with an opening gross of $6.6 million. (The Playlist)

Rashida Jones gets intimate with Zooey Deschanel in Our Idiot Brother. Yes, you read that correctly. The film is actually good, so there are other reasons to go see it, but in case you needed any convincing, this particular facet of the story should help. Jones, best known for her work on

The new trailer for Our Idiot Brother is crawling with hot ladies. Rashida Jones wears glasses (therefore hot), Elizabeth Banks plays a bitch (therefore hot), and Zooey Deschanel plays a slut (therefore hot). Emily Mortimer and Janet Montgomery ain’t no slouches either.

In addition to Rudd’s attractive sisters, you can also oogle more of his idiotic antics. Like taking money out of his pocket on the subway or making sure his parole officer knows he’s high. And, I can’t be certain, but I think he fed a dog chocolate. That dog is going to get chocolate-wasted. Literally.

Like indie comedy trailers? Well then Happy Easter to you, good buddy! Here’s the first trailer for Our Idiot Brother, which used to be called My Idiot Brother. They must have decided using the plural pronoun played better in Peoria or something.

The movie has Paul Rudd as the titular character, along with Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer and Rashida Jones as the “Our.” It’s pretty funny too, particularly the opening scene between Rudd and a police officer. Here’s the official plot synopsis, which I found inside a chocolate egg:

“Ned Rochlin (Rudd) looks for the good in every situation and in everyone, which often puts him at odds with the world around him – especially his family.  Upon being released from jail for a stupid mistake, Ned is kicked off of the organic farm he lives and works on by his ex-girlfriend Janet who also insists on keeping his beloved dog, Willie Nelson.  Having nowhere else to go, he turns to his family, three ambitious sisters (Banks, Deschanel, Mortimer) and an overbearing mother.  Ned crashes at each of their homes, in succession, and brings honesty, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives.  In other words, he wreaks havoc.”

Can’t wait until Willie Nelson gets his own CGI spin-off starring James Marsden. It can be called Our Idiot Willie Nelson Dog and it’ll be great.

With Hollywood eager to buy up science fiction pitches after the success of Battle: Los Angeles, it only makes sense that The Weinstein Company push back the release of the looks-to-have-promise Apollo 18 by eight months. Oh, wait. No. That doesn’t make sense at all.

What the hell? That trailer looked great. Did They Might Be Giants threaten litigation? Was Tom Hanks upset by the horror house portrayal of his beloved moon?? They also pushed back Piranha 3DD and added the re-titled Our Idiot Brother starring Paul Rudd and hot actresses and the Sarah Jessica Parker/Pierce Brosnan joint I Don’t Know How She Does It to the schedule.

The new release dates are as follows:

Apollo 18: January 6th, 2012

Piranha 3DD: November 23rd, 2011

Our Idiot Brother: August 26th, 2011

I Don’t Know How She Does It: Who cares?
