Already highly anticipated, Straight Outta Compton now has an official release date. Dr. Dre took to twitter to reveal the release date and the above promo shot featuring himself, Ice Cube, Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E), Corey Hawkins (replacing Marcus Callendar as Dr. Dre), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube) , and the film’s director F. Gary Gray.

The film is set to be released August 14, 2015, and that is exactly six days after the group’s album of the same name will turn 27 years old.
