For the second week in a row, NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton takes the American box office crown with $36 million, setting it up for a decent overseas release. However, this is still the fifth smallest week of 2015, signalling a late summer slump before the big fall and winter releases.
Three new releases entered the chart – Sinister 2, Hitman: Agent 47 and American Ultra, pushing Ricki and the Flash, Vacation and Trainwreck out of the top ten.
