Watch the 'Straight Outta Compton' Theatrical Trailer

The N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton released its first theatrical trailer Wednesday, offering a further look at the upcoming film. 

In February the R-rated movie released a harder hitting red band trailer with nudity and profanity, so it probably won't wind up on at your local cinema. This new clip is far from soft, but could at least be shown with something PG-13 or on MTV, which offers the premiere.

The film from director F. Gary Gray stars Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell and O'Shea Jackson Jr. It is slated for an Aug. 14 release. The rap group's founding members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are both onboard as producers.
