“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.
