#1-The concert movie of the British boy band ,One Direction ,scored the top place ,with $17million.This is a good debut and is above expectations ,considering many such concert movies have flopped recently (Katy Perry ,Glee). Directed by Morgan Spurlock (famous documentary director of Super Size Me) ,critics have given the movie 68% ,commenting that the movie is just for fans and wont be interesting to the others.
#2-The Butler finally stepped down from the top spot earning $14.7million in its 3 weekend.The Butler has become a big hit for the Weinstein Company ,and has so far made $74million from the domestic market alone.
#3-Another movie that has benefited from the dull movie period ,is We're the Millers ,which continued to reap success.With $12.6million in its 4th weekend ,the movie crossed the $100million domestic milestone.Currently the movie has made $149million worldwide and with not much competition in the comedy genre in the coming weeks ,it can still run smoothly.
#4-Disney's Planes proved to be a mild success as it made another $7.5million on its 4th weekend.So far the movie has made $102million worldwide ,which is not bad for a movie that was supposed to be a straight to DVD movie.
#5-Instructions Not Included made a fantastic debut with $7.5million.The reason its great is because it made that much from just 347 screens ,at an average of $21613 per screen (on comparison 1D made $17million from 2735 screens ,average $6215).On top of that ,its a Spanish movie!The movie is a comedy about a father and daughter relationship.
Meanwhile ,the other new release of the week ,Getaway bombed at the boxoffice.Making just $4.5million and getting panned by critics worldwide.The movie got just 2% ,and will find it very hard to recover its small budget of $18million.

This week we have just one main new release, and thats Riddick.
story-the 3rd film from the Riddick series,follows Riddick as he is abandoned on a planet on which lethal predators hunt him down.
+seems to be satisfying for fans of the previous 2
-the Riddick series isnt too great.The first was average,the second was worse.And i dont have much hope for this one.The cheap visuals didnt seem to attracting judging by the teaser trailer.
