Straight Outta Compton
Introducing the trailer for the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton. Ice Cube debuted the trailer in Sydney. Directed by F. Gary Gray and produced by original N.W.A members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, alongside Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright, Straight Outta Compton chronicles the rise and fall of the legendary hip hop group. The trailer looks great. The big question has been whether or not Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr., who plays his father in the film, would have the chops and charisma to pull of the role, and from what we see here it looks like he’s going to be fantastic.
The film also stars Paul Giamatti as N.W.A’s manager, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre and Jason Mitchell as Easy-E, and is set to hit theaters August 15, 2015.
We’re most eager to see the film because of Ice Cube’s obvious enthusiasm and heartfelt involvement in the project. If he’s this invested, odds are he’s going to hold the final product to high standards. Stay Tuned.
