The Butler Tops the Box Office

The positively reviewed film, The Butler, easily took the box office this weekend ($25 million), while the other newcomers, Kick-Ass 2, Jobs, and Paranoia underwhelmed ($13.6 million, $6.7 million and $3.5 million, respectively).  The good news, for these underwhelming films (if there is any), is that they weren't that expensive to produce.

The comedy, We're the Millers is holding on strong, as it dropped just over 30% from last weekend to take 2nd place, and may very well be the only movie of August to pass the $100 million mark (or get close to it).

All in all, Summer seems to be coming to a close as the box office is becoming less than Kick Ass (yes, pun... bam!).
