Opening in second-place with $9.7 million was the Weinstein Co. bootlegging drama Lawless, starring Shia LaBeouf. The Expendables 2 pulled in $8.8 million, falling to No. 3 after two weekends as the top draw at theatres.
Expanding to more theatres, the anti-Barack Obama documentary 2016: Obama's America added to its haul as a surprise mini-hit leading up the presidential election. Obama's America was No. 9 with $5.1 million, raising its domestic total to $18.3 million.
