Box Office Breakdown: The Butler Wins, Kick-Ass Falls Short, & Paranoia is Nowhere to be Seen

It’s kind of surprising that Kick-Ass 2 only managed to pull in a fourth place finish this week at the box office.  By all accounts this should have been the easy number one, especially considering The Butler got mostly middling reviews.  I don’t even know what to say about Paranioa.  Seriously, a film with Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, and a hot new actor and somehow it doesn’t managed to even break into the top 10.  Crazy.
