'Straight Outta Compton' Remains #1 on Tuesday with $1.49M; 'War Room' Stays Strong in Second with $1.22MSeptember 02, 2015 01:00 PM

by Daniel Garris

Straight Outta Compton grossed $1.49 million on Tuesday to remain in first place at the daily box office. The successful F. Gary Gray directed N.W.A biopic from Universal has led the daily box office for 18 of the past 19 days. Straight Outta Compton was up 12 percent over Monday and down a sizable 51 percent from last Tuesday. The film continues to impress in a big way with a 19-day take of $136.85 million. That places Straight Outta Compton a strong 45 percent ahead of the $94.32 million 19-day gross of last year's Ride Along.

Sony's War Room held steady in second place with $1.22 million. The low-budget Kendrick Brothers produced faith based film from TriStar and AFFIRM Films was up a very solid 27 percent over Monday's performance. War Room is playing in a modest 1,135 locations, which gave the film a healthy per-location average of $1,078 for the day. War Room is outpacing expectations with a five-day start of $13.54 million and is running a strong 32 percent ahead of the $10.26 million five-day take of 2011's Courageous.

The Weinstein Company's No Escape was up one spot and a strong 42.5 percent over Monday to move into third on Tuesday with $0.982 million. The action thriller starring Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell has grossed $11.84 million through its first week of release. That is in line with the film's modest expectations and places the film 6 percent behind the $12.63 million seven-day start of last year's The November Man (which had the added advantage of opening over Labor Day weekend).

Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation was down one spot from Monday to place in fourth with $0.892 million. The fifth installment of the Tom Cruise led blockbuster franchise increased 23 percent over Monday and decreased 39 percent from last Tuesday. Thanks in part to strong holding power throughout its run, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation has grossed a very healthy $171.86 million in 33 days.

Meanwhile, We Are Your Friends continued to under-perform in a big way with a daily take of just $243,811. The low budget Zac Efron led drama from Warner Bros. was up 20 percent from Monday and placed in 14th for the day. We Are Your Friends has grossed an anemic $2.22 million in five days and will obviously fade away from theatres very quickly.
