Universal has premiered a new trailer for the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, which will be arriving in theaters on August 14, along with five character posters highlighting the lead members of the gangsta rap group — O’Shea Jackson Jr. playing his father Ice Cube, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E, Aldis Hodge as MC Ren and Neil Brown Jr. as DJ Yella.
I’m incredibly curious to see how this plays out, especially with Cube and Dre producing, though Tomica Woods (played by Carra Patterson in the movie) is also producing, which might help add a bit of reality to the picture.
Check out the new trailer below.
