Straight Outta Compton
Not even the big G.O.D. can stop N.W.A., “Straight Outta Compton” remains #1 at the domestic box office for the third weekend in a row with $13.2M, upping its total to $134M. It got unexpected competition from Christian film “War Room,” which actually beat it on Friday, $3.9M to $3.8M.

Mission: Impossible - Rouge Nation
During the predictions portion of our my podcast with Binh Ngo, I was predicting that “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” would gross $70M for the weekend and “Vacation” $5M. I knew that the former would do better than expected and the latter worse. Although I was correct in that regard, I was way too high on “Rogue Nation” and way too low on “Vacation.”

Jake Gyllenhaal in "Southpaw"
“Pixels” drew $24M worth of quarters this weekend in theaters, continuing Adam Sandler’s slide at the box office despite having “Harry Potter’s” Chris Columbus at the helm. Generally speaking, that’s a decent figure for a comedy, but it’s got a couple of things working against it. First, during the comedian’s heyday, each of his films routinely opened in the $40M range.

Specialty Box Office: 'While We're Young' Expands Strong; 'It Follows' Holds Tight In Wide Release

fb.indiewire.com – Noah Baumbach's "While We're Young" continued to suggest its potential as one of 2015's first specialty breakouts in its second weekend.
