The trailer is finally here! During a concert in Brisbane, Australia, Original N.W.A. member, Ice Cube, gave the first look at the trailer for the biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton.’ Watch here.

It’s one of the most anticipated films of 2015, and now we have a first look. Ice Cube, who has been immensely involved with the film, Straight Outta Compton, decided to show some never-before-seen footage of the movie during a concert on Dec. 10! You can see the video above.

‘Straight Outta Compton’ Trailer

In the trailer, we hear Paul Giamatii, who not surprisingly plays Jerry Heller, the manager of N.W.A. and co-founder of Ruthless Records.

“Let me tell you what I see here: A lot of raw talent, swagger, bravado. People are scared of you guys, they think you’re dangerous, but you have a unique voice. The world needs to hear it,” Paul says.

With that, we can tell the tone of the biopic — which will give us a real look at the ’80s rap group which really changed the world of hip hop. Jason Mitchell takes on the role of Eazy-E, Corey Hawkins portrays Dr. Dre and Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., plays his father.

Ice Cube: ‘This Is Our Legacy’

“I’m totally involved, I’m engulfed in it,” Ice Cube told MTV News about the film. “This is our legacy, you can’t play with this, there’s no cutting corners. I’m fully engulfed in that movie, very anal about it. It gotta be right.”

The film will be directed by F. Gary-Gary and will tell the story of “how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.”

Straight Outta Compton hits theaters Aug.14. Are you excited?
