We Are Your Friends, the Zac Efron led film has suffered one of the worst wide release openings ever. We Are Your Friends released in over 2000 theaters this weekend and failed to even crack the top 10 with a $1.8 million debut.
In first for the third straight week was Straight Outta Compton adding another $13.2 million this weekend. Straight Outta Compton is one of only two films this summer to be the top grossing film of the weekend three weeks in a row. The other film being Jurassic World.
In second was new faith-based film War Room, debuting with a stellar $11 million. In third was Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation adding another $8.3 million. In fourth was No Escape making $8.3 million. And rounding out the top 5 was Sinister 2 with $4.7 million.
- Straight Outta Compton- $13.2 million.
- War Room- $11 million.
- Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation- $8.3 million.
- No Escape- $8.3 million.
- Sinister 2- $4.7 million
So how did I go in my predictions? I got 2/5, not too bad. I got Rogue Nation and Straight Outta Compton in the right positions. I didn’t expect War Room to do that good, I thought We Are Your Friends would do those type of numbers but I was way off. I also didn’t expect No Escape to do that well either.
