'The Butler' Did It... Again

Lee Daniels' The Butler The Weinstein Company

Stop us if you've heard this one before, but according to, "Lee Daniels' The Butler" won the box office for the second weekend in a row, as the drama about what goes on behind closed doors at the White House brought in an estimated $17 million.

That was enough to hold off a trio of newcomers, including "The Mortal Instruments" (third place with $9.3 million), "The World's End" (fourth place with $8.9 million) and "You're Next" (seventh place with $7 million).

The good news for all three of those films is that next week's crop of new releases looks even weaker. The bad news? There's a good chance "The Butler" might just do it again.
