STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON raps its way onto Ster-Kinekor cinemas with its national release on Friday, 02 October. In response to the international hype that this film is garnering, and local demand to watch it, Ster-Kinekor has brought the original release date forward by a month. The musical biopic about pioneering hip hop group, N.W.A, stood at No. 1 at the US box office chart during its opening weekend (14-16 August 2015), with an opening take of US$56 million.
With the huge interest that the anticipated release of this film is creating across South Africa, Ster-Kinekor is giving movie-lovers and hip hop fans alike the opportunity to see it first on the big screen. At select sites nationally, Ster-Kinekor is releasing the film for two pre-screenings only – at 17:00 and 20:00 – at select sites on Saturday, 26 September. Bookings are now open.
A number of special events have also been planned at various Ster-Kinekor cinemas in the build-up to the film’s release for the public’s participation and enjoyment. The first of these coincides with the pre-screenings on Saturday, 26 September.
It takes place at Ster-Kinekor Sterland, with hip hop artist Blaklez hosting the pre-screening at 17:00, and entertainment beforehand from a local group of hip hop dancers, the Dyverse Dance Crew, from 16:00.
On Wednesday, 30 September, you can join hip hop DJ Tbo Touch and SK Sessions for an exclusive screening of STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON at Ster-Kinekor Sandton. Mingle with Touch and other celebrities for cocktails from 19:00, and then watch the movie with him from 20:00.
If you want to get ‘Back to the City’ to watch STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, then Ster-Kinekor Newtown Junction in downtown Jozi is the place to be from 18:30 on Wednesday, 30 September. Ritual Media Group, the organisers of the popular annual ‘Back to the City Festival’, and production company Buvground have partnered with Ster-Kinekor Newtown Junction to bring an exciting mix of hip hop music, DJs and dancers to the cinema – with performances from DJ Kenzhero, Neo Beats and Amunishn – before the film screens at 20:00.

The film follows the story of the Compton, California, hip hop group N.W.A, and the biopic borrows its title from the group’s debut album. In 1988, this groundbreaking new group revolutionised music and pop culture, changing and influencing hip-hop forever. STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON is a multifaceted tale that encompasses the compelling personal stories of each of its members, while weaving in the social tapestry from which the group’s revolutionary music emerged over its 10-year span.
N.W.A’s first studio album, “Straight Outta Compton”, stirred controversy with its brutally honest depiction of life in southern Los Angeles. With guidance from veteran manager Jerry Heller, band members Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, DJ Yella and MC Ren navigated their way through the industry, acquiring fame and fortune along the way. They secured a place in history the moment they told the world the truth about life in the ‘hood, which ignited a cultural war.
The film stars O’Shea Jackson, Jr. (Ice Cube’s off-screen son), Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Neil Brown, Jr., and Aldis Hodge as N.W.A., with Paul Giamatti as their manager, Jerry Heller.
In 1987, five young men – Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson, Jr.), Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins of Non-Stop), Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell of Contraband), DJ Yella (Neil Brown, Jr. of Fast & Furious) and MC Ren (Aldis Hodge of A Good Day to Die Hard) – using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, transformed their frustration and anger about life in their inner-city Los Angeles neighborhood into the most powerful weapon they had: their music.
During the late ’80s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country.  The plague of crack cocaine was escalating at a rate as alarming as the violent, gang-driven business that propelled its use. The LAPD and its specialised gang unit were leading the charge on the war on drugs with an unchecked mercilessness, one that left residents of the Southern California community not merely tense, but shell-shocked, distrustful of authority and sorely embittered.
Eazy-E, a charismatic dope-selling hustler with the smarts to see a future in L.A.’s burgeoning rap scene, had a plan. Deciding to leave the street life behind, he reached out to his friend Dr. Dre, a local deejay who spun regularly at Compton clubs with counterpart DJ Yella.  They, too, were tired of dead ends and hungry for change, and Eazy-E had the resources and connections to make that change happen. Joining them in the venture were two young emcees from the block: MC Ren and Ice Cube, a talented 16-year-old whose explosive rhymes caught Dr. Dre’s attention. It was time to use their frustration as fuel for their art and give their people the one thing they desperately needed: a voice.
Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels – armed only with their lyrics, swagger and raw talent – stood up to the authorities who meant to keep them down and formed ‘the world’s most dangerous group’, N.W.A. And, as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the ’hood, their voices ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today.
Straight Outta Compton is a lifelong passion project directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job, Law Abiding Citizen) and based on a story by the film’s co-executive producers, S. Leigh Savidge (Welcome to Death Row) and Alan Wenkus (Private Resort), as well as Andrea Berloff (World Trade Center).  The drama’s screenplay is by newcomer Jonathan Herman and Berloff.
The drama, co-starring Golden Globe Award winner Paul Giamatti (HBO’s John Adams), is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Tomica Woods-Wright, Matt Alvarez (Ride Along series), Gray and Scott Bernstein (upcoming Ride Along 2).
