N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton is still resonating with audiences — it topped the box office for the third week in a row and made history as the highest grossing musical biopic ever.
USA Today reports the film raked in $134.1 million domestically, taking over the highest grossing biopic title from the Johnny Cash feature Walk The Line. The 2005 release, featuring Joaquin Phoenix as the late country music legend, made $119.5 million.
The film’s stars celebrated at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday evening. O’Shea Jackson Jr. presented an award with his father Ice Cube and mentioned how it was an honor to play him. Jackson Jr. was also thrilled that his favorite athlete, Kobe Bryant, got to check out his first movie.
