Dr. Dre & Ice Cube Unveil 'Straight Outta Compton' Red Band Trailer

February 8, 2015

Straight Outta Compton

"Our art is a reflection of our reality." Complete with a minute-long intro featuring the real life Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, founding members of the influential rap group N.W.A., the first red band trailer for the film chronicling the rise of the hip-hop giant has arrived. Straight Outta Compton follows this group of young boys from the hood who decided to use their words as a form of protest and to shine a light on their world. But what comes with that is a cultural war about race and class. This feels like it might be a little cliche as far as hindsight and dramatization is concerned with the rap group, but it doesn't look bad. Watch!

Here's the first red band trailer for F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton from Universal:

Straight Outta Compton

When five young men translated their experiences growing up in the streets of Compton, California 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 story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood igniting a cultural war. O'Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell star in the film directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, The Italian Job), and Universal releases it on August 14th.
