by at .  Updated at . Comments

The boy band did it and conquered the world of movies as One Direction: This Is Us won the weekend box office. The final weekend of the summer movie season belonged to the UK X Factor cast-offs as they took in an impressive $17 million to knock off the box office champ of the last two weeks, The Butler. Lee Daniels’ based-on-a-true-story civil rights chronicle took second, adding another $14.7 million to its haul.

The Butler has now made $74 million!
