Straight Outta Compton will hit theaters on August 14, 2015, with F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off) directing.

In that photo you see, clockwise from top left, producer Ice Cube, director F. Gary Gray, producer Dr. Dre, Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre), Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E) and O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube).

Here’s the official info from Universal:
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.

Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.

Agree 100%

I remember picking up so many albums in the mid to late 80’s…most were classics when compared to what is out there today (although my search continues for that elusive Dre track I heard in 1999 and never again since – a Realplayer file on an old site called dreday.com….incredible beat!!). If only Dre would drop some of those unreleased gems from the vault :naughty:

Good times!

Need to search out this part of the forum because I wanted to comment how much I was blown away by the Red Band Trailer for this film.

Went from a Top 20 film to watch to a Top 3 for me.

Wow! The actors they got to play the roles look almost exactly alike! Impressive!
Looks wicked!

Well that is Cube's son playing Ice Cube in the movie. ;)

Movie is looking bad ass for sure.

Do a steelbook and put in a multi disc plastic tray to put the CDs in. :p

Pigvomit! Awesome to see Giamatti in this. I'm kind of excited to see this. When they did Notorious a few years back, I was skeptical. But then turned out reasonably decent. I was always more of West Coast fan, so this could be quite cool. The best movie I have now to approximate it is Fear of a Black Hat :)
