Featuring an intro by Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have unleashed the Red Band trailer for ‘Straight Outta Compton.’ Starring Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, Neil Brown Jr. as DJ Yella, Aldis Hodge as MC Ren, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E and O’Shea Jackson Jr. as Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson Jr. is Ice Cube’s son), ‘Straight Outta Compton’ is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The film is set for August 14th.

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.
