Oh Hey, The “Straight Outta Compton” Trailer Is Here — And It Looks Pretty Great

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / February 9, 2015
I would like to hereby apologize for wrongly assuming that "Straight Outta Compton," the sorta-biopic about late-'80s/early-90s rap group N.W.A., would be a bad movie better suited for Lifetime. By the looks of this new Red Band trailer, the film looks less in the vein of that ill-advised TLC TV movie and more along the… More »
