Straight Outta Comptonis the hottest and best movie out, so FX had to call snatchies.
The network that brought you the famed, days-long Simpsons marathon last summer got another big acquisition. This time, it’s the rights to Straight Outta Compton. This isn’t a singular win either. Blockbusters Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jurassic Worldand Furious 7 are also coming to FX. Meanwhile, HBO gets Sesame Street. FX has also licensed 67 percent of the movies that’s earned over $100 million in the box in 2014, according to Variety.
Straight Outta Compton has been racking up wins itself. Its $60.2 million opening weekend is the fifth-largest in August history, and the largest for R-rated films. The critics have unanimously praised the biopic and some have even considered a Best Picture Academy Award nomination a possibility. But for now, Straight Outta Compton is on pace to earn over $100 million in the box office, and that’s right up FX’s alley.
