The three new releases failed to bring down Straight Outta Compton over the weekend, but one came close.
From Friday to Sunday, No Escape made a total of $8.2mil, bringing it’s 5 day total to $10.3mil.
Looks like no one wanted to be friends with Zach Efron over the weekend, as his new film We Are Your Friends completely bombed, making only $1.8mil by Sunday. This makes it one of the worst openings for any film film opening in 2,000+ theaters. Now, I didn’t think this movie was going to be a big hit or anything, but I never thought it would open to such terrible numbers.
Straight Outta Compton remained on top for a third weekend, making $13.2mil for a total of $134 so far. Compton has been the only bright spot for all the films that came out in August, as the majority have failed to latch on to audiences.
Straight Outta Compton – $13.2mil
War Room – $11mil
No Escape – $8.2mil
We Are Your Friends – $1.8
