For the third week straight, the N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" reigned supreme as the top dog at the domestic box office. This weekend, it added an additional $13,243,530 to its $134 million dollar domestic gross. Just missing the top spot and finishing at #2 was the Christian faith-based film "War Room," which drew in believers to the tune of $11,000,000 for its opening weekend. "Mission: Impossible - Rouge Nation" is still going strong in its fifth week in the top five, coming in at #3 and adding another $8,300,000 to it $170 million dollar total. Also new this weekend and coming in at #4 is the Owen Wilson-led dramatic thriller "No Escape," which opened this past Wednesday. The film took in $8,288,000 over the weekend and earned a five day total of $10,348,860. Closing out the top 5 was the horror sequel "Sinister 2," which added $4,650,000 to its $18.5 million total. There was one new addition, one other widely released film completely absent from top 10 as Zac Efron-led, Max Joseph-directed digital DJ drama "We Are Your Friends," which absolutely tanked, bringing in just $1,800,000 for it's opening weekend and earning the #13 spot. It is also the #4 ranked worst wide release opening from 1982-2015. Ouch.
