F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton film finally has a trailer. This highly anticipated biopic will chronicle the rise and fall of one of the most influential gangsta rap groups in hip-hop history (N.W.A.), and just from the trailer, this looks like it will be true to form. It is executive produced by the surviving members of the group, including Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, and honestly, it looks like they will do this story justice. Watch the trailer below, which features an introduction by Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. This trailer was first revealed at the 2015 Grammy Awards.
This is easily my most anticipated film of the year (yes, even above Avengers and Star Wars) seeing as I am a huge hip-hop fan, and I am just amped up for this movie. I wish I could watch it tomorrow... or right now.
The film will star: Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell as Eazy E, O'shea Jackson Jr as Ice Cube, Aldis Hodge as MC Ren, Neil Brown Jr. as MC Yella, and Paul Giamatti as Jerry Heller. It is directed by F. Gary Gray.
Straight Outta Compton will be released on August 14th, 2015.
