Why we, here in South East Asia still don’t have a release date for N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton” baffles me. Do studios and cinema operators in 2015 still think there’s no audience for a movie cast with mostly Black actors? They must also probably think Jay Chou and K-Pop artists created rap!
With or without the support of Asian audiences “Straight Outta Compton” will debut this weekend nationwide across America. Capitalizing on this the guys at Screen Junkies have decided to give the last big movie involving rap the Honest Trailer treatment. Controversial rapper Eminem’s big screen debut “8 Mile” gets an admittedly hilarious honest trailer. Still a good movie though.
