British pop stars One Direction can add U.S. box office winners to their resume after hitting number one with their new concert movie.

One Directon: This is Us, directed by Morgan Spurlock, grossed $17 million (£11.3 million) its opening weekend (30Aug13-01Sep13), narrowly beating Lee Daniels' The Butler into second place with $14.7 million (£9.8 million) in ticket sales in its third week of release.

Jennifer Aniston's drug comedy We're the Millers rounds out the new top three.

The box office figures do not include projected sales for America's Labor Day holiday on Monday (02Sep13).
