Straight Outta Compton Tops Box Office For Second Weekend

Straight Outta Compton easily held on to the number one spot ($26.8 million) this weekend as newcomers Sinister 2 ($10.6 million), Hitman: Agent 47 ($8.2 million),  and American Ultra ($5.5 million) all fell short of expectations.  In fact, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation managed to stick around for a 2nd place finish, despite being in it's fourth weekend.

In other news, just when you thought the Terminator franchise was coming to an end, Terminator Genisys opened in China to a huge $27.4 million. Which might be the sign that studio heads will greenlight another sequel, probably with a more altered story involving China in some way.  In fact, it's opening in China might have even eclipsed the $27 million opening here, domestically.
