For argument’s sake, let’s just say you wanted to avoid the long lines at the theater and would much rather wait to see F. Gary Gray’s new film Straight Outta Compton when it airs on television. If that was your choice, good news, FX just snatched the rights to the NWA’s biopic.
After earning close to $60 million domestically opening weekend, the cable network quickly made its bid and the film will air with commercials on the network, according to reports
FX has made a habit of grabbing box office hits to premiere on their network. They retained Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation two weeks ago, as well as Amy Schmuer’s Trainwreck, Jurassic World, The Minions and Furious 7 will also be showcased on the network.
Congrats to the cast
