'Straight Outta Compton' Debuts With Massive $56.1 Million!

Straight Outta Compton beat all expectations with an amazing $56.1 million gross at the weekend box office!

According to THR, the biographical drama received a bit of a marketing boost from the “Straight Outta” Internet meme that went viral.

Coming in at No. 2 was Tom Cruise‘s Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation, which brought in an additional $17 million, for a domestic total of $138 million.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E., starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, placed third with a $13.5 million debut.

Rounding out the top five were Fantastic Four and The Gift, which made $8 million and $6.5 million, respectively.

Meanwhile, at the specialty box office, Greta Gerwig‘s new comedy Mistress America took in $94,000 in four theaters for an average of $23,500 per-theater.
