Weekend Box Office Results: August 21st, 2015 - August 23rd, 2015

"Straight Outta Compton" retains the top spot in a weak week with 3 new releases

As the end of the summer blockbuster season begins to wind down, it's "Straight Outta Compton" that maintained the #1 spot this weekend, fending off all three of the new releases this late summer. The N.W.A. biopic pulled in another $26,756,125 in its second week out, bringing its domestic total to over $111 million. "Mission: Impossible - Rouge Nation"  held onto the #2 spot, adding another $11,700,000 to its $157 million dollar total. The horror sequel "Sinister 2" is the first of the new releases to appear in the top 5, finishing in third place by earning $10,633,000 its opening weekend. The video game based action reboot "Hitman: Agent 47" opened at the #4 spot with $8,200,000. The Guy Ritchie directed spy themed TV adaptation "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." edged out the newly released stoner spy comedy "American Ultra" for the #5 spot, earning another $7,420,000 in its second week. "Fantastic Four," or "Fant4stic," closes out the top 10 in a hilarious and disappointing 3-week top 10 run and is almost guaranteed to be shoved out of the the top 10 by this time next weekend.
