COMING SOON: Straight Outta Compton

If there's one thing I know for sure, it's that there will never be a shortage of biopics. Next month however, there's one that looks like it may bring something different. F. Gary Gray's "Straight Outta Compton" will tell the story of the legendary group N.W.A, but it seems like it will be as much about the social climate of 1980s California as it is about the artists. Now, I'm hardly an aficionado of old school hip hop, but I'm looking forward to the performances from these virtual unknowns. Who knows, we might find our next breakout star. The film is already getting good early buzz, as the review embargo is being lifted very early (i.e. tomorrow). That's always a good sign. Check out the trailer below:
