Emma Stone earned raves for her role in The Help, but the 22-year-old's star power wasn't enough to knock Rise of the Planet of the Apes from the top spot at the box office.

Apes, the action-packed blockbuster starring James Franco and Freida Pinto, earned $27.5 million in its second weekend, bringing its domestic gross total to $105 million.

The Help, based on the best-selling novel and costarring Viola Davis, came in second place with $25.5 million, bringing its five day total to $35.4 million.

The horror flick Final Destination 5 debuted in third place with $18.4 million, followed by The Smurfs with $13.5 million (it premiered July 29). 30 Minutes or Less, costarring Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari, debuted in fifth place with $13 million.

The weekend's biggest letdown was Fox's Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, which debuted at No. 11 with a mere $5.7 million.
