Subscribe to One Direction alerts

Lee Daniels' The Butler has edged out One Direction's new concert movie to top America's Labor Day weekend box office chart.

The British boy band's Morgan Spurlock documentary, One Direction: This Is Us, grossed $17 million (£11.3 million) in its first three days on release, narrowly beating Daniels' civil rights drama, which came in second place with $14.7 million (£9.8 million) on Sunday.

However, The Butler managed to pull ahead in ticket sales for the full holiday weekend (30Aug13-02Sep13), earning a total of $20 million (£13.3 million) in its third weekend on release - $2 million (Gbp1.3 million) more than the pop stars' opening four-day haul.
