'Straight Outta Compton' Set to Rule Box Office for Third Consecutive Weekend


After topping the box office for two consecutive weekends, Straight Outta Compton is poised to reign for a third.

Per Variety:

“Straight Outta Compton” will top the box office for a third consecutive week with roughly $15 million, but the N.W.A biopic’s endurance isn’t a massive accomplishment given that the competition is pretty docile. Three new films will enter the marketplace this weekend — political thriller “No Escape,” faith-based drama “War Room” and the disc jockey romance “We Are Your Friends” — but none of them is of the blockbuster ilk.

Weak competition or not, there’s no denying that Straight Outta Compton has shattered all expectations at the box office, so to that, we raise our glasses.
