Box Office Winners August 16-18, 2013

THE BUTLER

Proving Oprah Winfrey is still the Queen of (almost) all media, ‘The Butler’ took in an impressive $25 Million dollars this weekend. The feat is particularly impressive when ‘Kick-Ass 2’ was the odds on winner to take the weekend, at least until the weak Friday numbers came in. The gross-out comedy ‘We’re the Millers’ took in $17.7 Million to hold on to second place for a second weekend in a row. Last week’s winner ‘Elysium’ is in a tight race with newbie ‘Kick-Ass 2’ for 3rd place, until the numbers are examined in more details this week we won’t know who won. Disney’s disappointing ‘Planes’ rounds out the top 5. Take a look at the top 10 movies below.
