Gabbing Geek Box Office Report- Straight Into the Box Office


Did the Fantastic Four jump over Mission Impossible and newcomers Straight Outta Compton and the Man From UNCLE to claim the top spot? No. It didn’t. Who won the week?

*  Finishing first this week was Straight Outta Compton with a STUNNING $56.1M IN its debut weekend. The production budget for the NWA biopic was rumored to be $30M. This opening has Universal, already hot this year, doing backflips.


* Coming in second this week was Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, grossing $17.3M in its third weekend. The third weekend dropped was less than 50% so the multiple on this flick should be a nice one for Paramount.


* Number three this week was The Man From UNCLE finishing  with $13.5M.  No franchise opportunity here for Superman and the Lone Ranger.

*Pulling in at #4 this week was The Fantastic four with an absurdly low $8M. That is an almost 70% drop week over week and the bloodbath continues.


* Rounding out the top five this week was The Gift in its second weekend with $6.5M. This movie has done fairly well at the theaters and will continue to succeed in the secondary markets.
