Straight Outta Compton enjoyed a third weekend as number one movie, earning its three-peat not so much on staying power but a lack of anything better showing up to compete.

Religious drama War Room was the weekend's highest per-theater earner, banking almost $10,000 per screen, but given its limited release, sales only added up to $11 million. That wasn't enough to topple Compton which dropped a normal 50% from last weekend, adding #13 million to its now $134 million total.

No Escape didn't have a built in audience to play to like War Room, or if it did (does Owen Wilson have a fan club?) they didn't show up to help the movie off to a good start. With an $8 million opening it managed a weak fourth place debut.

In a bid to milk as much summer revenue as it can out of its newest and goldeniest cash cow, Universal almost re-doubled the number of screens showing Jurrasic World, boosting sales enough to push the movie back up into the top ten. It had almost slipped into the less-than-a-million club but this new re-expansion brought in $3 million this weekend, adding a touch more to the film's already massive $643 million domestic haul.

Zac Efron's latest offering We Are Your Friends didn't seem to have any friends in return. Despite being in wide release (2,300+ locations) the movie tanked hard, barely scraped together $1.8 million, leaving it well off the top ten chart and putting it in the running for worst per-screen opening of summer 2015.
