It’s been less than 24 hours since the official release of the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, and the F. Gary Gray-directed project has already reportedly reeled in a, whopping estimated $24.2 million, spread out across 2,757 North American theaters.
Now, a new report from Deadline estimates that the film is expected to soar above $59M by the time opening weekend closes. The incredibly successful opening marks the “fourth highest opening day for an August release.”
