Straight Outta Compton: Straight to the Top with $56.1 Million

The reported $29 million flick Straight Outta Compton easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend ($56.1 million).  This proves that Universal streak is still hot for 2015, with still over 4 months to go. In fact, (this week or tomorrow or the day after that) Straight Outta Compton will push Universal to become the fastest studio to gross over $2 Billion, in a single year, domestically.  The record was previously held by Warner Bros in 2009, but it took them till December 25th.

Speaking of Warner Bros., their new film, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., had to settle for third place ($13.5 million).  Which isn't that good for U.N.C.L.E. considering it's reported budget is $80 million.

And, as expected, Fantastic Four dropped almost 70% to $8 million.
