Print Friendly, PDF & Email



The sci-fi actioner, “Elysium,” won the battle for number one at the domestic box office last weekend, but another tussle is underway for that top spot. There are four new contenders hitting theaters this weekend:  the corporate thriller, “Paranoia,” the Steve Jobs biopic, “Jobs,” the sequel to the superhero comedy, “Kick-Ass 2,” and the historical drama about a black butler who served eight presidents, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler’ .” The real threat to “Elysium” holding onto number one for a second week, comes from “Kick-Ass 2” with its built in fan base and the Daniels’ movie , which already has Oscar buzz. More on the weekend movies and the box office here.
