Straight Outta Compton No. 1 again



After its record-breaking debut last weekend, Straight Outta Compton once again topped the box office, bringing in an estimated $26.8 million and handily beating this weekend’s three other new releases.

The N.W.A. biopic opened to an enormous $60.2 million last weekend, and 10 days after its release, Compton has already grossed more than $111 million domestically. Compton was actually one of two Universal movies to cross that milestone this weekend, as Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck also hit the $100 million mark. That brings Universal’s total number of $100+ million films to seven this year.

But while Straight Outta Compton held up well in its second weekend, the trio of newcomers fell flat, and all three performed under expectations. Sinister 2 did the best out of the three, opening to $10.6 million, but that’s still under initial expectations of $14 to $16 million — and well under the $18 million that the first Sinister opened to in 2012. The sequel’s debut wasn’t enough to secure second place; instead, that went to Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which earned $11.7 million in its fourth weekend, bringing its domestic total to just shy of $160 million.
