For the third straight week, Straight Outta Compton has dominated at the box office. Get the latest stats inside and watch a trailer for Will Smith’s upcoming film.
The cast of SOC, shown atop during the recent premiere in Berlin, have a lot to celebrate. In addition to huge debuts all around the world, the film is still number one in the States!
This week, SOC managed to make $13.1M, bringing the cumulative total to $134.1million! Maintaining #1 was a huge feat because the film faced competition from the Kendrick Brothers’ War Room, a faith-based film targeting Christians. War Room eventually made $11.3M.
Also, the film’s success is quickly turning SOC castmembers into household names. Just yesterday, O’shea Jackson (who plays Ice Cube) joined his dad onstage at the 2015 VMAs as a presenter. We’re expecting to see a lot more from the cast and even bigger Hollywood roles in the future.
Meanwhile, Ice Cube tweeted….

It’s expected to be in theaters on Christmas Day.
