Summer 2013 has been a pretty lackluster time for the Box Office. I blame the quality of the films coming out. This weekend I was actually looking forward The World’s End being #1, but it was beat out by The Butler. I’m not even saying The Butler is a bad film, it’s probably fantastic; it’s just a shame that more genre films aren’t making money.

It’s really a shame that You’re Next didn’t premiere with more than $7mil at the Box Office; but at the same time, the film probably only cost that much to make. So, I guess that’s actually a win.

 Title Weekend Total
1.  Lee Daniels’ The Butler $17,018,000 $52.2
2.  We’re the Millers $13,500,000 $91.7
3.  The Mortal Instruments $9,300,000 $14
4.  The World’s End $8,942,000 $8.9
5.  Planes $8,567,000 $59.5
6.  Elysium $7,100,000 $69
7.  You’re Next $7,050,000 $7
8.  Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters $5,200,000 $48.3
9.  Blue Jasmine $4,300,119 $14.7
10.  Kick-Ass 2 $4,300,000 $22.4

Next week, I’m expecting The Butler to be #1 again. It’s going up against Ethan Hawke’s, Getaway, and the One Direction film. What a way to end the summer.
