'The Butler' Ends 1D's 'This Is Us' Dominance at Labor Day Box Office After 4 Days


'The Butler' Ends 1D's 'This Is Us' Dominance at Labor Day Box Office After 4 Days
The Lee Daniels-directed drama about a White House butler becomes the first pic of 2013 to secure the throne for three consecutive weeks.


"Lee Daniels' The Butler" reclaims top box office spot at the end of the 4-day Labor Day holiday. The Forest Whitaker starrer, which features the Oscar winner as a White House butler serving seven presidents, grabs $20.2 million to win back the throne and become the first movie of 2013 to stay atop for three weeks in a row.

Following the new result, "One Direction: This Is Us" drops to No.2 on the chart. The Simon Cowell-produced 3D documentary, which gives fans behind-the-scene moments during the five heartthrobs' first world tour as a band, takes in $18.5 million for Sony/TriStar.

"We're the Millers", the raunchy comedy with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis as fake couple, remains unmoved over its current position. Holding the third place in its fourth week, the Warner Bros. flick receives $16.3 million. Trailing behind it is "Planes", an animated film from Disney that earns another $10.9 million.

Another new Labor Day entry stuns, while the other flops. "Instructions Not Included" marks the biggest opening ever for a Spanish-language film in North America by grossing $10.4 million. Despite its starry cast including Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke, "Getaway" debuts to an awful $5.6 million approximately at No. 10.
