Dr Dre’s rap movie grabs $56.1 million dollars in three days after release

Dr Dre’s rap movie “Straight Outta Compton” has beat all expectations, grabbing an estimated $56.1 million dollars less than three days of release.

R-rated Compton; the biopic about the hip-hop group N.W.A, produced for just $29 million, posted a best-ever opening and overshadowed other rap movies like Eminem’s “8 Mile”, which bowed to $51.2 million dollars in 2002, and “Notorious”, the story of Notorious B.I.G., which opened to $20.5 million dollars in 2009.

The film could also claim the best August opening for an R-rated movie as well as the top opening for a musical biopic.
