The long awaited and heavily promoted movie Straight Outta Compton is taking no time to rack up the millions at the box office. The N.W.A biopic swarmed to $60.2 M’s in the first weekend out beating the estimated target of around $56 million that had Universal expected. The movie opened in 2,751 theaters giving it the top spot at the box office this weekend making it the biggest success for a musical biopic of all time! The closest next to the N.W.A flick is the 2005 movie Walk The Line which netted $22.3 in its first weekend, so needless to say that record has been shattered.
The hype was real leading up to the movie’s release date, but the movie itself is getting rave reviews making it worth the price of admission, popcorn and soda too. Check out the official trailer: Straight Outta Compton – Official Trailer (HD)
