Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal captured the box office's final summer weekend with a steady estimated $21.4 million domestic for their film Prisoners in its opening weekend.

Trailing the crime thriller was last week's box-office sensation Insidious: Chapter 2, which raked in $14.2 million domestic in its second weekend in theaters, bumping its gross total to $50.5 million for the horror film, which was produced with a $5-million budget.

Following in the incremental path of the top two, The Family finished $7 million below Insidious 2 with an even $7 million domestic.

After an unimpressive opening last weekend, the crime comedy, starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, has grossed $25.6 million domestic.

The historical drama Lee Daniels' The Butler, starring an ensemble cast that features Oprah Winfrey in her feature return, continued to add to its $100-million-plus domestic total, increasing to $106.4 million with a $4.3-million weekend.

The Top 10's largest-grossing film, We're The Millers, had yet another solid weekend, finishing in seventh with $4.3 million on the weekend.
