The film wrapped up three straight weekends at No. 1 at the box office on Sunday, according to studio and industry estimates.

Universal PicturesNWA biopic took in about $13.2 million over the weekend, making it only the second film to lead at the box office for three consecutive summer weeks, taking the helm on that record along with Jurassic World!

Also registering at the box office this weekend was surprise success story War Room, a Christian film that unexpectedly took in $11 million worth of cash from faith-based families and viewers.

No Escape, Owen Wilson‘s new movie, took in about $8.3 million this weekend, too. Disappointingly, though, Zac Efron‘s dance drama We Are Your Friends was a complete dud, taking in just $1.8 million over the weekend. Yikes!!!

What about U — did U watch anything new in theaters this weekend??
