Straight Outta Compton makes 56.1 million in it’s debut weekend-then its goes up to 60.2 a few days later! The movie’s budget was 29 million, it’s safe to say they definitely profited! It jumped pass American Pie 2 and became the biggest rated R movie of August. Top of the charts in both the U.S. & Canada!
This N.W.A biopic was a phenomenal movie! It was a perfect way to portray legends Ice Cube, Dr. Dre,DJ Yella, &MC Ren & The Late Eazy-E. I believe that it depicted a perfect image of whats going on with young minorities around the country. As far as the police brutality and targeting any black male that looks like a “thug”. Producers Ice Cube ,Dr. Dre, Etc. used the Rodney King story to create a visual for the audience on how they related with their own experiences and going forward and making the song “F*** Tha Police”. N.W.A’s F*** Tha Police was and still is classic! It brought communities together, And cause riots at N.W.A’s Performances in several cities. They also did a really good job of showing each individual of the group living their lives separately. Overall Straight Outta Compton was a must see movie!
