On a very slow late-August weekend, Lee Daniels’ The Butler easily held on to the top spot at the box office. We’re the Millers also continued to play well, while all three new nationwide releases opened to less than $10 million.
Overall, the Top 12 earned $90 million. That’s up nine percent from the same weekend last year, when The Expendables 2 led with a weak $13.4 million.
With good reviews and strong word-of-mouth, The Butler fell 33 percent to $16.5 million. In comparison, The Help dropped 23 percent at the same point in its run two years ago, while 42 dipped 36 percent in its second weekend in April. Through 10 days in theaters, The Butler has earned $51.8 million.
Late Summer comedy hit We’re the Millers eased 27 percent to $13.05 million, which allowed the movie to rank second for the third-straight weekend. It’s now earned $91.3 million, and it will pass $100 million next weekend. Unless something drastic happens—like One Direction: This is Us winds up being a massive hit—We’re the Millers will be the highest-grossing August 2013 release.

It can’t be film festival season without at least a couple projects involving James Franco and 2013 is no different. Over the coming weeks we’re going to see yet another film directed by the prolific polymath and another based on his book of stories, which he will star in. So let’s dive right in.
We have to admit that we sort of forgot “Palo Alto” was even happening, but it is notable for a few things. Firstly, it’s the feature debut of Gia Coppola, yet another family member getting into the filmmaking business. She’s mostly done music videos and commercial work for now, and this marks her first time not only directing, from a screenplay she penned herself. Secondly, the film has a pretty interesting cast including Emma Roberts, Nat Wolff, Val Kilmer and….Franco, playing a football coach? Okay, we’re intrigued. Here’s the official synopsis:
An unflinching take on teen angst and adult ineptitude, PALO ALTO is from first-time helmer Gia Coppola. Teddy, April, Fred and Emily use booze, marijuana and sex to get through the turmoil of adolescence.
“Child Of God” will play both Venice and Toronto, while “Palo Alto” is only going to Italy. Images below.
