Hurricane Derails Box-Office

While we're all keeping our eyes on Hurricane Irene, stories are floating around today about how this weekends box-office returns will likely be the lowest of the year, a meager $80 million, which of course, is partially due to exhibitors being forced to close about 1,000 theaters across the entire East Coast. 
But really, as Nikki Finke pointed out this morning, this whole hurricane business is a really nice excuse for one putrid release week, lets be honest. There's always a late August lull, and we're in it.
