Fans of One Direction showed their support for the British boy band this weekend, boosting One Direction: This Is Us to the top of the Labor Day weekend box office. The documentary made $17 million in its first three days of release, followed by last week's top earner, Lee Daniels' The Butler, with $14.7 million. We're the Millers came in third place with $12.6 million, Planes climbed up to fourth place with $7.8 million, and Mexican import Instructions Not Included came in fifth with $7.5 million, a surprising total given that it was only released in 347 theaters. Selena Gomez thriller Getaway took in only $4.5 million, and fellow new release Closed Circuit with Eric Bana scored $2.5 million. Monday totals showed that Lee Daniels' The Butler actually won the four-day weekend, grossing $2 million more than One Direction: This Is Us.
