Dr. Dre and Ice Cube introduce the first look at Universal Pictures’ Straight Outta Compton coming to theaters on August 14, 2015. Straight Outta Compton, which is showing off a red band/restricted trailer, charts the rap group N.W.A. and was directed by F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job, Law Abiding Citizen). Straight Outta Compton stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell as N.W.A. members Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Eazy-E, and Ice Cube and Dr. Dre served as producers on the dramatic film.
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 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.
