Los Angeles - Sony's faith-based drama War Room has the edge on N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton with $9.3m to lead the modest U.S. box office over the Friday-Sunday weekend.

Straight Outta Compton took in $8.9m at 3 094 locations in its fourth weekend, ending its impressive three-week winning streak at domestic multiplexes. The title should add another $2.3m on Monday to cross the $150m milestone, representing another triumph for Universal in a stellar 2015.

Sony/Affirm's War Room has continued to exceed projections following its surprisingly robust opening weekend, when it took in $11.4m. The film, playing at 1 526 sites, is on track for a four-day Labor Day weekend haul of $12.3m, bringing its 11-day total to $27.6m.

War Room stars Priscilla Shirer, T.C. Stallings and Karen Abercrombie and was directed by Alex Kendrick.
