Box Office: ‘The Butler’ Cleans Up With $25 Mil; ‘Kick-Ass 2′ Ties for Third Place. Robust frame keeps summer box office at record pace

The Weinstein Co.’s “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” cleaned up at the domestic box office this weekend, overperforming with an estimated $25 million in three days, while Universal’s “Kick-Ass 2″ delivered a soft $13.6 million domestically, not strong enough even to claim second place.

Holding very well in its sophomore outing, Warner Bros.-New Line’s R-rated comedy “We’re the Millers,” down just 33%, outgrossed “Kick-Ass 2″ handily, with an estimated $17.8 million. The holdover continues its steady march to nine figures, cuming nearly $70 million after only 12 days of release.

Tying with “Kick-Ass,” Sony’s “Elysium” fell a respectable 54% in its second frame, bringing the pic’s Stateside 10-day cume to nearly $56 million.

Total domestic B.O. stayed relatively flat with last year, when “The Expendables 2″ debuted with more than $28 million.

The year-over-year hold virtually ensures summer box office will hit record heights, with pundits estimating May-September totals to reach as high as $4.8 billion. The previous summer record of $4.4 billion was set in 2012.

Also bowing this weekend, Open Road’s Steve Jobs biopic “Jobs” disappointed with an estimated $6.7 million, while Relativity Media’s thriller “Paranoia” did even worse, grossing a paltry $3.5 million through Sunday.

The success of “The Butler” this weekend, in particular, comes only two years after “The Help” beat expectations, with just $20 million. That pic, however, outgrossed its opening by nearly nine-fold, a benchmark standard for any film this time of year. “The Butler” needs to continue to broaden its base dramatically to achieve a similar multiple.

At the weekend’s specialty box office, Sony Pictures Classics saw another healthy expansion for Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” which took in an estimated $2.4 million from 229 locations, lifting its domestic cume to $9.5 million. Pic expands Friday to at least 800 playdates.

It stood on the shoulders of giants. Now, audiences are standing on its neck!

I feel bad for contributing to Elysium's total.

Poor start for Kick Ass 2, but the budget is small so it should be profitable.

I just knew about it yesterday, when i saw the trailer just before i watched Elysium.

Looking at the release sched: http://boxofficemojo.com/schedule/ We're basically done for the Summer. Barring a big surprise hit, the next potential blockbuster looks to be Thor: The Dark World in early November.

Pretty disappointing blockbuster season overall, quite a drop-off from last year.

Literally never heard of or saw an advertisement for The Butler until this thread.

I was going to call Kickass 2's performance tepid but I didn't realize it's budget was so low. Shame Planes will make back its budget and encourage Disney into producing more animated dreck.

Shame about Elysium, it may not have been the best movie but it was still better than almost all the movies this summer. Thought it would do better.

Was it? I liked it, better than the first. Good fun time of dark comedy mixed with fun action. Needed more Jim Carrey, though, he was killer. Mother Russia was legit scary.

There are more movies that did more business than last year.

Iron Man 3
MOS
FF6
WWZ
MU
DM2

All of those did over 200 million, not to mention those which did over 100 million like

The conjuring
The heat
Grown Ups 2
