Straight Outta Compton Falls to Second Due to Unlikely Film
Three weeks at the top of the box-office was it for Straight Outta Compton, which fell to second place in its fourth week out adding an estimated $8.85 million to its total. It was bumped off by the faith-based film War Room, which earned $9.35 million in its second week. Faith-based films tend to have a strong grassroots marketing program, so it’s not surprising it did so well, but a first place finish is.
Also of note is the debut of Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos, a Mexican animated film which earned $3.4 million and came in seventh. The strong showing of that film and War Room show strength in niche films geared towards a specific audience.
Inside Out added $3.1 million to its total to come in tenth, Ant-Man was eleventh with $2.9 million, and Minions was twelfth and earned $2.7 million. Jurassic World continues to earn with $2.6 million more at the domestic box-office. Fantastic Four continues to tank and added $1.125 million to bring its total to $54.4 million domestically and $155.6 million worldwide.
The Diary of a Teenage Girl continues to do well and added $258,926 to bring its total to $1.3 million.
