"Lee Daniels' The Butler" Tops Box Office
Posted by Luis Cuevas on Aug 19, 2013 - 11:35:09 AM

HOLLYWOOD—“Lee Daniels’ The Butler” took the top spot over this weekend’s box office with more than $25 million. The Weinstein Company picture starring Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey did a lot better than expected with the release of so many films this past weekend.

The Jennifer Aniston comedy “We’re The Millers” took the No. 2 spot with $17.8 million. Neil Blomkamp’s action film “Elysium” starring Matt Damon took the No. 3 spot with $13.6 million. The much-anticipated dark action sequel “Kick Ass 2” failed to find an audience, bringing in $13.6 million to take the No. 4 spot. Disney’s "Planes” took the No. 5 spot with $13.1 million.

 

This coming week brings a lot of new movies including the third installment of Edgar Wright directed comedies “The World’s End” starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, “The Frozen Ground” starring Nicolas Cage, John Cusack, Vanessa Hudgens and 50 Cent, and “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” based on the popular book series starring Lily Collins. Limited releases include the home-invasion horror film “You’re Next” and “Drinking Buddies” starring Olivia Wilde.
