This can't arrive soon enough.
A brand new trailer for the highly anticipated N.W.A biopic 'Striaght Outta Compton' has been released. The film, which follows the story of Ice Cube, Dr Dre and Eazy-E, delves into their formation, the recording of their first album and their run-ins with the police.
The film was produced by Dr Dre and Ice Cube themselves and directed by F. Gary Gray, who said of it; "It's not unlike 'Social Network' or 'American Graffiti' where you take a place and time in America, especially as it relates to popular culture, and you see the shift, and they were right there and created part of the pivot that America took in entertainment."
