13 April 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

New Trailer for Straight Outta Compton Is Monumental

1 April 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Universal Pictures has released a brand new trailer and some striking posters for the must-see movie of the summer, Straight Outta Compton.

This one is going to a huge hit.

In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-e, Straight Outta Compton is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job »

Brand New Trailer & Character Posters For ‘Straight Outta Compton’

1 April 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sure, we had the first trailer and look at Straight Outta Compton last month but here’s more for a vitally important biopic in both music and the lives of these true music legends.

Music has a power like no other and if you’re great, it can change the world around you in any way possible. N.W.A. were unlike anyone else and not only had a huge rise to fame but became the astonishing true story of influencing and revolutionising pop culture alongside their success. This wasn’t your standard tale though as in the mid 1980s Compton in California had some of the toughest streets in the USA. But then along came Eazy-e, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Mc Ren and DJ Yella, who gave an explosive voice to a generation with brilliant, brutally honest music that rebelled against the abusive authority around them.

Universal has premiered a new trailer for the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, which will be arriving in theaters on August 14, along with five character posters highlighting the lead members of the gangsta rap group -- O'Shea Jackson Jr. playing his father Ice Cube, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-e, Aldis Hodge as Mc Ren and Neil Brown Jr. as DJ Yella. I'm incredibly curious to see how this plays out, especially with Cube and Dre producing, though Tomica Woods (played by Carra Patterson in the movie) is also producing, which might help add a bit of reality to the picture. Check out the new trailer and character posters below. sb id="1506549" height="360" width="640" In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country.

Straight Outta Compton Trailer Debuts At Ice Cube Concert

5 January 2015 7:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

N.W.A fans and cinephiles alike have been eagerly watching over the past year as Ice Cube and Dr. Dre pulled together Straight Outta Compton, a biopic that charts the rise of their seminal hip-hop group, and now the first trailer for that hotly anticipated film has arrived – courtesy of Cube himself, who screened the preview during a Sydney concert.

As such, the footage is a little blurry, but two videos (one close up but blurry, and one far away but clear) give a pretty clear picture of what was screened. And the main takeaway is that this movie looks really terrific – as the project has progressed, Cube and Dre, alongside director F. Gary Gray and producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright, took great care to find actors who really embodied the members of N.W.A, and that diligence appears to have paid off.
