STORY: The Box Office numbers are out... and rap group N.W.A. is still selling hard. The group's biopic "Straight Outta Compton" cruised steady in Number 1 for a third consecutive week. The beat-filled film brought in $13.2 million this weekend, pushing its domestic total to more than $134 million and making it the highest-grossing musical biopic ever. The faith-based "War Room" came in second, surprising many by bringing in $11 million -- three times its production budget. Coming in third was "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation." The action spy movie took in $8.3 million... enough to top Owen Wilson's "No Escape" ... "Sinister 2" ... and Zac Efron's worst wide-release of his career, "We are Your Friends."
