What a way to end the Summer of 2013. It has already been a pretty big letdown compared to last year, and having One Direction: This is Us take the top spot this weekend, is just the nail in the coffin. The film brought in $17mil, pushing The Butler off the top spot.
|1.||One Direction: This Is Us||$17,000,000||$17|
|2.||Lee Daniels’ The Butler||$14,742,000||$74|
|3.||We’re The Millers||$12,610,000||$109.5|
|5.||Instructions Not Included||$7,500,000||$7.5|
|7.||The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones||$5,200,000||$22.6|
|8.||The World’s End||$4,759,000||$16.56|
|10.||Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters||$4,425,000||$54.9|
That was the only true competition, figuring the Ethan Hawke/Selena Gomez film, Getaway, also premiered this weekend; but only brought in $4.5mil. Let’s just hope that the Fall brings in more dough, starting with Riddick coming back to theatres this weekend.
