Hollywood may have hit peak genre mashup with Snake Outta Compton.
Heat Vision is debuting the first trailer for the film, which centers on a rap group about to sign its first big record deal just as a science experiment gone wrong threatens the city of Compton.
A quick look at the trailer reveals a lot going on — there’s a little bit of Training Day, Snake on a Plane and Straight Outta Compton — plus a thick-glasses-wearing nerd-turned-monster creator whose style may seem familiar to ’90s kids.
Hank Braxtan directs the project, which he wrote with Tim Johnson and brothers James Kondelik and Jon Kondelik. Snake Outta Compton is from Automatic Entertainment, which will be shopping the film at next month’s American Film Market.
It’s eyeing a summer 2018 release date.
