An odd day to release a trailer but hey, what do I know?
A brand new trailer for the highly gangsta biopic about “The World’s Most Dangerous Group” has hit the web. The trailer is more of the same from the previous trailer but also has some new scens that gives at least some motivation for each of the three main members, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Easy E.
I have to say though, while everyone I know is digging the trailers and such, I haven’t. I’m still a little pessimistic about this movie, you have Paul Giamanti playing their manager in a cartoonish wig and makeup and he comes across as their white sponsor. Which may just be me reading to much into this but hey, I thought Selma was going to be a watered down, heavily dramatize biopic and looked how that turned out, I couldn’t have been further from the truth.
The film is being directed by F.Gary Gray who has worked with Ice Cube before, he directed Friday and some of Ice Cube’s music videos. So hopefully he will inject some harsh and stark realism and not hold back in this film.
Straight Outta Compton is being released in theaters on August 14, 2015
