Box Office Numbers: Compton

0

I love when Hollywood realizes there’s a huge audience out there for films like Straight Outta Compton. I worry about biopics all the time, and I was worried Compton would suffer the same generic fate. But thanks to its timeliness, we finally have a biopic, let alone a hip hop film, that works. 

That effort was rewarded with $56 million dollars while the two spy films Rogue Nation and The Man from UNCLE came up ith $17 and $13 million respectively. 

Here are the box office performances for the August 14-16 weekend.
