The late summer slowdown has arrived at America’s movie theaters, but don’t tell that to Universal Pictures. The studio is flying high with “Straight Outta Compton” ruling the box office for the second weekend in a row.
F. Gary Gray’s biopic about the rise of seminal rap group N.W.A. took in another $26.7 million (down a slightly more than expected 55.5%) for an incredible $111.4 million in just 10 days. With little real competition on the horizon, “Compton” could remain no. 1 all the way through Labor Day weekend.
