After weeks at number one, the F. Gary Gray–directed film Straight Outta Compton has been knocked out of the top spot.
The website also reports that ticket sales for Straight Outta Compton dropped 33 percent compared to last weekend. Despite this weekend’s drop in ticket sales, the film has managed to earn close to $150 million.
“The winner of the slower Labor Day weekend, however, was ‘War Room,’” the Los Angeles Times reports. “The film jumped to No. 1 in its second weekend after pulling in an estimated $9.4 million Friday through Sunday from a modest 1,526 locations, according to early figures. If Labor Day estimates hold, the film will reach an estimated domestic total of nearly $28 million by the end of Monday…Universal Pictures’ hit musical biopic ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ which dropped 33% in ticket sales from last weekend, added $8.8 million over the three-day weekend, raising its domestic total to $147.8 million.”
Straight Outta Compton, which detailed the rise of N.W.A and Ruthless Records, spent three weeks at number one before losing the number one spot to War Room over the weekend.
