Box Office Wars: STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON Continues to Slay

The mega hit biopic, Straight Outta Compton continued to light up the weekend box office with stellar numbers. Last weekend's opening pulled in over $57 million. This weekend's estimated tally leaves Straight Outta Compton at the top of the box office charts for a second week, with an estimated $27.6 million in ticket sales. To date, the hip hop biopic has earned $111 million. This film is destined to be quite a contender during the nomination phase of award season.

The highly anticipated horror sequel, (for horror fans) Sinister 2, had a lukewarm opening weekend. The film grossed $10.6 million, grabbing the third box office spot.

Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation continued to perform well with $11.7 million, bringing its four week domestic box office total to $157 million and $280.8 million in foreign box office receipts.
