Straight Outta Compton easily took the top spot with an incredible $56.1 million haul, more than it was projected to take. Straight Outta Compton now holds the distinction of being the biggest R-Rated opening for the month of August.
In second was Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation continuing its great box office streak making $17 million. In third was the other new release this weekend The Man from U.N.C.L.E. making a meager $13.5 million.
In fourth was the troubled Fantastic Four, taking a massive 69% drop from last weekend making $8 million. The films bad press and audience reaction has definitely hindered its box office performance, Fox is sure to lose a lot of money. Rounding out the top 5 was The Gift making $6.5 million.
- Straight Outta Compton- $56.1 million.
- Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation- $17 million.
- The Man from U.N.C.L.E.- $13.5 million.
- Fantastic Four- $8 million.
- The Gift- $6.5 million.
So how did I go in my predictions? I got 3/5. I was right with Straight Outta Compton taking first and Fantastic Four and The Gift taking the fourth and fifth spot but I just got Rogue Nation and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. around the wrong way.
