The F. Gary Gray-helmed film is also the highest-grossing movie from an African American director ever.
Straight Outta Compton was the No. 1 R-rated August opener ever, grossing $60 million during it’s opening weekend, and it held the No. 1 box office position for three weeks in a row.
It follows the rise and fall of rap group N.W.A, and stars Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins and O’Shea Jackson Jr. as founding members Eazy E, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube.
