The Butler Wins Box Office

The Butler

The butler did it.

Despite a clutch of new films in theaters this weekend, Lee Daniels' The Butler topped them all, serving up $25 million, according to studio estimates.

The victory came as a surprise to some analysts, who expected summer's latest superhero flick, Kick-Ass 2, to whip the competition.
