Three new movies rolled out this weekend but none were big enough to upset last weekend's top two movies.
Horror sequel Sinister 2 fared the best of the newcomers, banking just $10 million, well short of the $18 million debut of its 2012 predecessor. It earned enough for a distant third place behind repeat top earner Straight Outta Compton which added $26 million to its now $111 million domestic total, and second place Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation with its $11 million take.
Hitman: Agent 47 fared worse, earning a paltry $8 million for a weak fourth place. The second attempt to bring the Hitman video game franchise was also a disappointment compared to the previous entry. Hitman opened with $13 million back in 2007.
But the biggest disappointment this weekend was American Ultra. The attempted action comedy had more than a few recognizable names attached, but critical panning and minimal marketing kept audiences away. It bowed in with just $5 million at sixth place and is set to disappear from the top ten quickly and quietly.
