If you were told that an indie film also beat out the other two new releases, you definitely wouldn’t buy it.

The Butler
Despite some surprisingly positive reviews coming in for some of this weekend’s new releases, nobody expected any of them to be destined for any large revenues.

Several new releases are blazing their way into theaters this week, promising quite the menagerie of genres and flavors for audiences this weekend: there’s a futuristic action flick, a decidedly adult comedy, a sequel to the movies adaptation of a fantasy novel series, and a new Disney film.
