Ice Cube Unveils ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Trailer in Australia [VIDEO]
Rap fans in Sydney, Australia were treated to a special preview of the highly anticipated N.W.A biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton.' During his concert Down Under, Ice Cube premiered the uncensored trailer to the movie about "The World's Most Dangerous Rap Group."
According to Shadow and Act, this happened earlier this month, and a clip has been floating online for a couple of weeks. However, recently, a clearer video has popped up on YouTube.
The mesmerizing trailer starts off with a picturesque view of California with palm trees and sunny skies before it segues into the backdrop of what appears to be the 1992 L.A. Riots.
In the opening voice-over, which sounds distinctly like N.W.A.’s manager Jerry Heller, he states, “I’ll tell you what I see here. A lot of raw talent, a fire, bravado. You boys scared me to death. They said you’re dangerous. But you have a unique voice. The world needs to hear it.”
This leads into a barrage of action sequences featuring the actors who portray the N.W.A. members, including Ice Cube's son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., who looks exactly like his father. At the end, we see Eazy-E, played by Jason Mitchell, in Jerry Heller’s office. He asks him what does N.W.A stand for?
“No Whites Allowed,” quips Heller, played by Oscar-nominated actor Paul Giamatti.
Eazy looks at Heller with a determined look and says, “No. N----s With Attitude.”
Judging by the trailer, it looks like Cube, who serves as one of the executive producers on the project, has developed an exciting movie about the legendary Compton rap group.
‘Straight Outta Compton’ is directed by F. Gary Gray and tells the story of N.W.A and how they revolutionized pop culture with their brand of reality music. The film will open in theaters on Aug. 14, 2015.
