WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Straight Outta Compton threepeats atop the chart with 13.2MM during the August doldrums, but was almost toppled by the faith-based War Room, which placed with 11MM against a 3MM budget. Faith-based films did pretty well last year, but not so much this year untill now. Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation showed with 8.3MM; it looks to finish at roughly 500MM; well below Ghost Protocol, but sufficiently profitable to continue the franchise. No Escape debuted in the fourth slot with 8.3MM, and will have to rely on the home video market for profit. Sinister 2 rounded out the Top 5 with 4.MM on the 56 percent dropone expects from a cheapie horror flick; it may make a slight profit, but a third installment would be a candidate for straight-to-video.
