For the second week running, Straight Outta Compton has topped the US box office. The film was financed for $29 million (not counting marketing) and has now earned more than $111 million in the US alone.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation clung to second place with horror sequel Sinister 2 arriving at third with $10.6 million. Hitman: Agent 47, the second attempt to turn the popular game into a film was shot down by some dreadful reviews and with just $8.2 million from it’s opening weekend, a sequel looks unlikely.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. buckled a little in the face of new competition, falling to fifth from third but it’s the NWA biopic, produced by Dr Dre and Ice Cube which continues to roll in the dollar and often like their music, stay at the top of the charts.
