‘Straight Outta Compton’ and ‘War Room’ Reign Supreme

Straight Outta Compton

How often does it happen that two films with Black casts occupy the top two spots at the Box Office? Well, it happened this weekend with Straight Outta Compton and War Room.

Straight Outta Compton took the Number One spot with $13.2 million at the Box Office, bringing its total to $134.1 million. This is the third consecutive week that the film has held the Number One spot. It is the only film besides Jurassic World to do so this summer.

The competition for the top spot was close as War Room was right on its heels, even tying it on Friday. The Christian film took in $11 million, beating out films such as We Are Your Friends and No Escape. War Room took in over six times the amount as the Zac Efron-led We Are Your Friends despite being released on less than half the amount of screens.
