(AP) "Lee Daniels' The Butler" is serving up success at the box office.


According to studio estimates Sunday, the Weinstein Co. biopic about a White House butler debuted in the top spot with $25 million.


But the weekend's three other new offerings the action romp "Kick-Ass 2," Open Road's Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs" and the dramatic thriller "Paranoia" failed to find traction with fans.


Universal's "Kick-Ass 2" debuted in fourth place with $13.56 million. "Jobs" opened in seventh with $6.7 million. And Relativity's "Paranoia" didn't crack the top 12.


Last week's No. 1 film, Sony's "Elysium," dropped to third place with $13.6 million. The Jason Sudeikis-Jennifer Aniston Warner Bros. comedy, "We're the Millers," held onto second place with $17.78 million, while Disney's animated "Planes" rounds out the top five.
