Highest chart position: 2
Weeks on box office: 6
Following the path laid down by its US box office release, Straight Outta Compton this week climbs to the top of the UK box office on its debut.
A low week overall for the box office grosses and Compton's weekend take is £2.4 million, it is higher than last weeks top film.
Last weeks top film was Paper Town which this week takes a big shove down the box office and ends up at number 8 this week.
A £452,953 second weekend gross brings the film to £3.4 in total with the prospect of a very short 3 week run.
Worth noting is the run of Inside Out which once again is at 2 and again topps the chart if we count Monday - Sunday figures.<> Also new this week is Hitman Agent 47 at number 3 and 45 Years new at number 10, Zak Efrons We Are Your Friends is considered a flop with a number 13 entry.
A year ago

Adam Sandler continued his box office run with Grown Ups which made its debut at the top knocking off The Expendables which fell to number 4.

X-Men held film at the top of the box office stopping Shanghai Noon from topping the chart, it had to make do with a number 2 debut.
Twenty years ago
Sandra Bullock hit the top with While You Were Sleeping on its debut weekend knocking Die Hard With A Vengeance down to 2.
Twenty five years ago
Die Hard 2 Die Harder stayed at the top leaving Wild At Heart to debut at number 2.
The UK movie goer this week kept Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson in the top position with a number of weaker new releases in the market.
The Luc Besson directed film took just under £2 million during it's second weekend of release and now sits with a total gross of £8 million.
Highest new entry of the week is the buddy cop comedy Lets Be Cops starring Damon Wayans Jr., as you'd expect from a film of this kind it's a slap stick comedy.
Lets Be Cops takes £1.6 million for the weekend, but I suspect it may sink and disappear from the box office quickly.
Other new films to hit the box office this week are
Sin City A Dame To Kill For at 4 (with previews grosses)
If I Stay at 6 - the new Daniel Radcliffe so maybe a little disappointing
As Above so Below at 8
Million Dollar Arm at 15
A year ago this week One Direction This is Us took the top slot on it's debut weekend of release pushing Elysium to 2.
Five years ago The Final Destination took the top of the box office on it's first weekend taking over from Inglourious Basterds.
Ten years ago Dodgeball entered the chart at the top and knocked The Village down to 2 after it's single week at the top.
Fifteen years ago Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was toppled from the top of the box office by South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut on it's debut.
In America this week the Turtles kept at bay all new comers to hang onto the number 1 spot for a second week.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the remake/reboot) has now grossed $117 million dollars at the American box office over it's 10 day release period.
Staying in the runner up spot is Guardians of the Galaxy which means the highest new film of the week enters at 3.
Lets Be Cops directed by Luke Greenfield and starring Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. took $17.7 million for the weekend, beating the highly anticipated The Expendables 3 which struggles with $12 million.
