WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: War Room ascended to top the chart with 12.6MM, edging out August champ Straight Outta Compton, which placed with 11.3MM.  War Room is already profitable against a 3MM budget; Tri-Star and Affirm films made the smart move of launching their faith-based flick during the annual box office doldrums. The debut of A Walk in the Woods showed with 10.6MM over the holiday weekend, following a somewhat similar strategy of drawing older viewers to the not-ready-for-Oscarsbait before there was much competition.  Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation continues a leggy run with 9.3MM in the fourth slot, still looking to land somewhere around 550MM worldwide.  The Transporter Refueled rounded out the Top Five with 9MM, which is below the last installment, but likely enough to profit worldwide given that they aren't paying Jason Statham.

SYRIA: Twelve migrants thought to be Syrian refugees were feared to have drowned off the coast of the Greek island of Kos on Wednesday after the boats carrying them sank. A number of bodies washed ashore on a beach in the Turkish resort town of Bodrum, probably connected to the disaster. Meanwhile, CIA and U.S. Special Operations forces have launched a secret campaign to hunt terrorism suspects in Syria as part of a targeted killing program that is run separately from the broader U.S. military offensive against the Islamic State, U.S. officials said.
