N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton movie is slated to bring in $59.4 million in its opening weekend, according to Deadline. This more than doubles the original projections that had the film grossing $25 to $29 million. It brought in $4.96 million in the early screenings on August 13 (Thursday), and $24.2 million opening day.

The biopic cost around $29 million to produce, so considering the first weekend the film is a studio success. Even more-so, it's a victory for hip-hop to properly tell the story of one of the most important groups in our genre.

If you saw the movie already, what did you think of it? Let us know in the comments.
