Straight outta the US opening weekend (sorry, I couldn’t help myself), STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON has done extremely well in box offices, with a $60.2 million release. First things first – given that COMPTON cost about $29 million to produce, the film has already gained incredible profit. The original projected estimate for opening weekend was $25 million, but COMPTON has already surpassed expectations and will go further still.
This successful opening places COMPTON in box office record books, making it the fifth biggest August opening in history and the biggest opening for an R-rated film during the month. The film is also boding very well for Universal Studios. COMPTON is the studio’s sixth Number 1 opening this year.
