A new red-band trailer has appeared online for Straight Outta Compton, a biopic on one of the most musically influential groups in hip-hop history, NWA. Not only that but it features an introduction from original NWA members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.

The new film follows the rise and fall of “the world’s most dangerous group”, as they change the face of hip-hop, while dealing with their own personal demons.



Describing themselves as “some kids from Compton who touched the world” doesn’t show the greatest amount of modesty from our stars but then again, this is hip-hop. If you can’t show some bravado here, where can you?!

Whether or not you’re a fan of the group, when Ice Cube drops the opening bars of Fuck The Police, we’re sold. Even the most hard-nosed jazz-loving policeman must raise a smile.



Straight Outta Compton is directed by F. Gary Gray and stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. (who will play his dad, Ice Cube), Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell and the always good value Paul Giamatti. It will open in the UK on the 14th August 2015.
