The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie is assured of not being the No. 1 movie this weekend in the U.S. and Canada. The question is how far it will trail Straight Outta Compton.

The Guy Ritchie-directed U.N.C.L.E. film had ticket sales of $900,000 on Thursday, while Straight Outta Compton had $5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Times is reporting that Straight Outta Compton, about the rap group N.W.A., may exceed $40 million in ticket sales for the weekend, while U.N.C.L.E. may total $16 million. The newspaper cited “analysts who reviewed pre-release audience surveys going into the weekend.”

Straight Outta Compton also has been better reviewed, with an 87 percent “fresh” rating on the ROTTEN TOMATOES website, while U.N.C.L.E.’s “fresh” score is 67 percent as of late Friday morning New York time.
