Straight Outta Compton fell 56% in its second weekend but still managed to take first place on the box office charts with $26.8M. It might have been helped due to the fact Universal added 268 venues to the hit biopic’s 2,757 venues, for a total of 3,025 venues screening the film. It’s Universal’s 13th weekend with a film in the #1 position, all hail the Universal overlord!

Tom Cruise has latched onto the number two position in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, dropping only 32% for an $11.7M weekend. On 3,392 theaters the film has a domestic total of $157.7M so far. Add in the international cash flow and you’ve got another Mission: Impossible movie coming your way in a few years.
