Los Angeles (AFP) - "Straight Outta Compton" grabbed another top spot on weekend ticket sales charts, according to estimates Sunday, extending the rap film's rule over the North American Box office for its third week running. The film about pioneering rap group N.W.A. took in some $13.2 million in sales, box office tracker Exhibitor Relations said. It was half the haul "Straight Outta Compton" had last week but took the film's total take-in to $134.13 million.
San Diego offensive linemen have accused Seattle Seahawks rookie defensive lineman Frank Clark of trying to punch Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers during a pre-season game. Several Chargers players were angered when team-mate King Dunlap was given a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness as he yanked Clark from a pile of players after Rivers had been sacked in the Saturday night contest. Dunlap told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he did not see the incident but said he wanted to protect Rivers after hearing his teammates yelling at Clark.
