'Straight Outta Compton' Stays No. 1, 'We Are Your Friends' Flops


“Straight Outta Compton” captured the top spot at the American box office for third straight week and  “We Are Your Friends” opened so badly it set a dubious Hollywood record, according to Sunday estimates.

The faith-based drama “War Room” fared much better, with $11 million, and the Owen Wilson thriller “No Escape”, which got a head start by opening two days earlier on Wednesday, brought in $10.3 million for the five-day release.

“Straight Outta Compton,” following the rise of N.W.A., has exceeded all expectations by grossing $134.1 million so far.

The Zac Efron-starring “We Are Your Friends,” by contrast, had the worst opening of all time (not adjusted for inflation) for a new major studio movie in 2,000 or more theaters.
