At almost four minutes, the new red-band trailer for Straight Outta Compton includes both an introduction from Dr. Dre and Ice Cube and a full preview of N.W.A.’s rise to fame.
According to the film’s official description:
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 astonishing 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.
The project stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. as Ice Cube, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre and Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E. Original N.W.A. band members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are attached as producers, alongside Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. F. Gary Gray is on board to direct.
Straight Outta Compton hits theaters on Aug. 14. Check out the trailer below.
