There’s no denying that the N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton” had a brilliant marketing campaign. A website that allowed visitors to replace “Compton” and add their own photo was a huge hit, and unfortunately caught the eye of someone at the White House, who thought that “Straight Outta Uranium” would make a great argument on behalf of the Iran nuclear deal.
After that embarrassment, the film itself was released this weekend and easily topped the box office, grossing $60.2 million. CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield reported the big news, though: There was no report of violence at the screenings, according to a law enforcement analyst.
You could poke someone’s eye out with those lightsabers.
We wonder if hip hop fan Sen. Marco Rubio ever managed to catch a screening?
