One Direction: This Is Us Leading Holiday Weekend Box Office


By Shari Weiss



One Direction: This Is Us won the box office in its debut weekend, but the verdict is still out for the four-day holiday total.

The documentary-concert film earned $17 million for Friday through Sunday, ahead of The Butler, which took in $15 million.

Both are currently projected to rake in roughly $20 million total through Labor Day, making the race too close to call just yet.

In third so far is We’re The Millers with $13 million, and a possible $16 million total for the holiday.

Planes and the new Spanish-language comedy Instructions Not Included are currently in fourth and fifth places, respectively, and are expected to hold tight.
