The Butler Serves Up Second Box Office Win

FOREST WHITAKER and OPRAH WINFREY star in LEE DANIELS' THE BUTLER

Despite the release of three new movies this weekend, Lee Daniels’ The Butler maintained its place atop the box office, bringing in $17 million in its second week out. And, just like last week, the Jennifer Aniston-powered We’re The Millers took second place with $13.5 million (Did you hear that the 44-year-old plays a stripper? Moviegoers sure have.) In third place was teen bait The Mortal Instruments, which made $9.2 million. The fourth spot went to The World’s End, a "most entertaining" final chapter to Simon Pegg’s cornetto trilogy, which opened with $8.9 million. Disney’s animated Planes rounded out the top five with an $8.6 million weekend haul. Meanwhile, the horror film You’re Next premiered in sixth place with an even $7 million.
