The Butler was no match for the boy band.

After a strong opening day showing at the box office, One Direction continued to dominate on Saturday and Sunday, racking up $17 million in total profits and finishing the holiday weekend as the top film in all the land.

Harry Styles and company easily out-earned Katy Perry: Part of Me, which only brought in $7.3 in its opening few days, although the young singers could not toppled Justin Bieber and his opening mark of $29 million food Never Say Never.

With the victory, This Is Us knocked Lee Daniels' The Butler from its top perch, but not by much.

Here's a look at the top five grossing films of Labor Day weekend:

  1. One Direction: This Is Us: $17 million
  2. Lee Daniels’ The Butler: $14.7 million
  3. We’re the Millers: $12.6 million
  4. Planes: $7.8 million
  5. Instructions Not Included: $7.5 million
