by Liz Raftery
Mexican comedy Instructions Not Included, which has been a surprise hit this summer, jumped from sixth place to fourth, earning $5.7 million in its fourth week.
The 3D dance movie Battle of the Year brought in a disappointing $5 million, enough for a fifth-place finish in its opening weekend.
We’re the Millers held strong in its seventh week in theaters, landing at No. 6 with $4.7 million, while The Butler finished in seventh place with $4.3 million. Riddick fell to eighth place with $3.7 million.
