Straight Outta Compton Tops Box Office

Straight Outta Compton

Straight Outta Compton banked this past weekend at the box office. The biopic about the Hip-Hop/Rap group N.W.A. brought in $60.2 million in its first weekend beating out Ant-Man and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. Directed by F. Gary Gray, Straight Outta Compton may just have been the film much needed for the summer. This film broke from the trends of being either a superhero film or a sequel/franchise film. This was a biographical film about real life people that rose from poverty into stardom. N.W.A. is one of the most influential and controversial Hip-Hop/Rap groups of all-time.
