‘The Butler’ Tops Box Office For 2nd Week
“Lee Daniels’ The Butler” was the most-watched movie at theaters again this weekend. For the second week in a row the historical drama about a long-serving White House butler was the number one movie in America. The film stars Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey.
Some new releases were not well received. The teen fantasy “Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones,” opened in third place with $9.3 million in ticket sales. Edgar Wright’s pub-crawl-gone-wrong comedy “The World’s End” opened in fourth place with $8.9 million, but was not playing in many theaters.
