Hi everyone, Bryan Here….
We have our first big look at ‘Straight Outta Compton‘, which is the biopic film that chronicles the lives of the rap group ‘N.W.A.‘ and their rise to stardom. The film stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, ‘Straight Outta Compton‘ is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.
Synopsis: In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
This particular trailer is intro’d by Ice Cube and Dr. Dre as they cruise through their old neighborhood, reminiscing about the start of their group and what they wanted to accomplish. The film itself looks great with Paul Giamatti playing music manager Jerry Heller. Let us know if you’re excited to see this.
