The trailer for the long-awaited N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton is finally here — sort of. While the official, high quality trailer for the F. Gary Gray directed film hasn’t yet been released, Ice Cube shared it with fans at a concert in Sydney a few weeks ago, and a decent quality fan video of the preview has just made its way online.
Ice Cube, who is a producer and main player in the film (portrayed by his son, O’Shea Jackson Jr.), excitedly showed off the first real footage anybody has seen, and from what we can gather it looks pretty promising. Jason Mitchell and Marcus Callenderas look good as Eazy-E and Dr. Dre, and Paul Giamatti’s hair is amazing. Straight Outta Compton is slated for an August 2015 release, and an official trailer will presumably drop sometime before that.
