 'Straight Outta Compton' Film  - 2015

Despite “Straight Outta Compton” 56% drop, the NWA biopic topped the domestic box office with $26.8 million, bringing it to ten-day total of $111 million. The second spot went to the Tom Cruise action flick “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” even though three new films had wide releases. Bringing in $11.7 million in its fourth week, “Mission: Impossible” managed to beat “Sinister 2″ by $1.1 million.

The other two new films had an even worse weekend. “Hitman: Agent 47,” Fox’s attempt to bring the video game series to film, only brought in $8.2 million. The film’s Rotten Tomatoes score of 7% probably won’t help the film in the following weekends. One a positive note, the film performed better than “American Ultra,” starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg. The film grabbed only $5.5 million on 2,778 screens, bringing it in to 6th place.
