Check out the new and final poster for the upcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. The film stars Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube), Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre), Aldis Hodge (MC Ren) and Neil Brown Jr. (DJ Yella).
In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music. Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels—armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent—stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world’s most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today.
Straight Outta Compton also stars Marlon Yates Jr as The D.O.C, Paul Giamatti as Jerry Heller and Keith Stanfield as Snoop Dogg. The film is directed by F. Gary Gray and produced by Ice Cube, Tomica Woods-Wright, and Dr. Dre. It is also being executive produced by Will Packer.
