Straight Outta Compton Tops Third Weekend

Straight Outta Compton ($13.2 million) held on to the top spot at the box office for the third weekend in a row. Newcomer, We Are Your Friends, failed to crack the top ten ($1.8 million) as it's target audience would rather go to an EDM event than watch it on the big screen.

The other newcomer, War Room, did much better than expectations ($11 million), probably due to it's faith based marketing, since it's reviews are mostly negative.

In other news, Minions, crossed the $1 Billion mark worldwide and has become the third movie to do so for Universal so far this year (Furious 7, Jurassic World).  It's also the first time a studio has had three movies hit the billion mark in a single year.
