It’s been a while since we heard any news on the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, but now an official red band trailer for the movie has hit the internet to coincide with last night’s commercial during the Grammys telecast.
The red band trailer for Straight Outta Compton begins with a black-and-white prologue starring the real-life Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, discussing the parallels between the world in 2015 and when they made it big in N.W.A. Then the actual trailer begins, with some voice over work by none other than Paul Giamatti (!).
Judging by the trailer, the actors playing the members of N.W.A. fully inhabit their roles (which especially makes sense in the case of Ice Cube, who’s played by Cube’s real-life son), and Straight Outta Compton looks almost as exciting as the album it takes its name from. You can see for yourself by watching the trailer below:
The movie comes out on August 14th, but until then you can check out its official Facebook page here for updates.
