The big release of N.W.A.’s Straight Outta Compton is coming full speed ahead, and the makers of the flick are dropping breadcrumbs to keep us all on our toes. Flyers displaying the iconic hip-hop group’s doppelgangers have been released and the accuracy is admittedly impressive. Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, MC Ren and DJ Yella are played by O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, Aldis Hodge and Neil Brown Jr.
The film will chronicle N.W.A.’s rap careers and portray the racial tension going on in the south side of L.A. during a time when the police and black community were severely at odds. Straight Outta Compton hits theaters Aug. 14, but in the meantime we have not one but two trailers and these doppelganger movie characters posters to hold us over.
Flip through to see the cast posters and watch the new trailer below.
