The preview for ‘Straigh Outta Compton’ is prefaced by cameos from Dr.Dre, Ice Cube and more.
Already mired in controversy due to the tragic accidental death of Terry Carter on set at the hands of former Death Row Records boss Suge Knight, the N.W.A biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton’, is already one of the most talked about music films ever – prior to its release. Now – following the release of a new trailer, the noise will only grow louder.
This latest spot is prefaced by a one minute long intro cum commercial for American automobile giants Chrysler, which features cameos from N.W.A founding members Dr.Dre and Ice Cube, as well as fellow compton rappers The Game and Kendrick Lamar. We then cut to a trailer for the film itself, which sees Academy Award nominated actor Paul Giamatti playing Ruthless Records boss Jerry Heller alongside several unknown actors starring as the N.W.A members. Tracing the group’s journey from humble beginnings in the South Central Los Angeles neighborhood of Compton to their infamous period as the subject of federal investigations and the most talked about group in America, ‘Straight Outta Compton’ is understandably highly anticipated. Tentatively slated for a 14th August release date, you can watch the trailer below.
