‘War Room’ Beats ‘Straight Outta Compton’ At Labor Day Holiday Weekend Box Office – See Full Top 10!
The summer box office is officially cooling down with a lackluster holiday weekend that had War Room battling and beating Straight Outta Compton for the top spot.
As Gossip Cop has reported, Straight Outta Compton held on to the top position for the last three weeks, with the biopic about N.W.A. far exceeding analysts’ initial predictions. And with a relatively small turnout this weekend, Straight Outta Compton fell to War Room. The little-known Christian film won first place with just $12.3 million in ticket sales. Coming in second was Straight Outta Compton with $11.2 million.
Taking a surprising third was the Robert Redford and Nick Nolte movie, A Walk in the Woods, with $10.3 million. Nabbing fourth place was Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation with $9.4 million. And securing fifth was The Transporter Refueled, minus Jason Statham, which took in a haul of $8.7 million.
Rounding out the Top 10 were the Owen Wilson dramatic thriller No Escape with box office receipts of $6.8 million to take the number six spot, followed by The Man From U.N.C.L.E. with $4.7 million for seventh place. The critically-acclaimed Pixar movie Inside Out came in eighth with $4.4 million, while ninth place went to the Spanish-language, animated kids’ movie Gallo Con Muchos Huevos with $4.3 million. Remaining in the Top 10 was Sinister 2 with $4.2 million.
