The summer is nearing an end, and the blockbusters are drying up — at least for the next few weeks!
We've got the most recent box office numbers from this past weekend, but don't get your hopes up if you were looking for an underdog to take Straight Outta Compton's place at the top — that ain't gonna happen!

The rap biopic maintained its box office success this weekend, earning about $26.8 million in ticket sales over the last couple days throughout North America, and it continued to dominate the box office after opening so strongly last weekend — in total, the film has cleared about $111 million in two weeks!
There were some new releases, of course, but none of them could match Straight Outta Compton; Sinister 2 came up with $10.6 million at the box office — which is just over half of what the original film debuted with back in 2012.
And, in its fourth weekend of release, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation made $11.7 million, continuing to make a ton of money thanks to big summer crowds.
There aren't many major new releases due out for the next couple weeks, so expect some more of the same at the box office over the next couple weekends.
What do U think — any movies in your future as the summer ends and blockbuster releases will soon start up again in the fall??
