The film was down 22 percent from Tuesday and off 40 percent from the Wednesday of last week. Look for The Butler to post another strong hold this weekend as its march toward $100 million continues.
Warner Bros.' We're the Millers added $0.83 million to its bankroll yesterday, off 37.2 percent from Wednesday of last week. The comedy's momentum continues to propel it as the early fall season begins. Millers has collected $115.1 million domestically to date.
Sleeper hit Instructions Not Included was down 14 percent from Tuesday to $0.591 million yesterday. The Spanish comedy is cornering the Latino market right now, having grabbed $11.65 million since opening last Friday.

Meanwhile, One Direction: This Is Us added $0.386 million on Wednesday. The concert pic's six-day domestic cume is $19.46 million--42.6 percent behind Justin Bieber: Never Say Never through the same point. With fans having piled into theaters upfront last weekend, the film's holding power is proving weak as expected.
