If "Compton" hits its mark, Universal will become the studio to reach $2 billion the fastest. If you've been paying attention, 2015 has been a record-breaking, money making year for the studio.
It all started in February when a college student met a kinky billionaire.
And then came Universal's first sequel of the year.
"Furious 7" grossed more than $351 million in the states, all while proving people will indeed watch a movie that is basically the same over and over... and over.
And then came the reboot every studio should try and copy.
As a matter of fact, out of its 11 releases in 2015, only four have made less than $81 million in the U.S. And with the hugely anticipated "Steve Jobs" and "Sisters" still to come, the hits will probably keep on coming.
