Straight Outta Compton

"You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge." I just saw this film last night, and it's dope. No really, it's exceptional. Our friends at Fandango have debuted a new set of artistic posters designed by illustrators from Southern California made to promote F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton, the story of N.W.A and the rise of many of the talented musicians from that era. The posters feature unique styles that highlight the five main talents - Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Dj Yella and MC Ren. Watching these five on screen is enrapturing because they're played with such bravado by an incredible young cast - O'Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Neil Brown Jr. and Aldis Hodge. I dig these posters - see below.

Check out the four new posters for Straight Outta Compton below via Fandango. Mouseover for artist.

You can still watch the first red band trailer for Straight Outta Compton here, or the second trailer here.

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). Straight Outta Compton arrives August 14th.
