Watch: First Teaser for Benny Boom's 'All Eyez on Me' Tupac Biopic
"Above all else, to thine own self be true. Now, let me see your spirit." Open Road has debuted a teaser trailer for the biopic All Eyez on Me, which profiles the life of successful American rapper Tupac "2Pac" Shakur. The trailer has been released on what would've been Shakur's 45th birthday, and teases some of the scenes we'll see from his life. Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays the late musician, who became one of the most accomplished rappers before he was killed in a drive by shooting at the age of 25. The title of a film is the same as Tupac's fourth album, regarded one of his best. There are some cool shots in this, could be good.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Benny Boom's film All Eyez on Me, found on YouTube:
A chronicle of the life of rapper Tupac Shakur. Originally titled just Tupac, the film will focus on the career of Tupac all the way up to the fatal drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996. The new title is a reference to Tupac's fourth studio album, released in February of 1996 months before he was killed. All Eyez on Me is directed by filmmaker Benny Boom, of the films Wild for the Night and Next Day Air previously, as well as many music videos. The screenplay is written by Ed Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft. Open Road Films will release Boom's All Eyez on Me in select theaters starting November 11th later this year. Who's interested?

Thog Lyfe. It was funny working with groups of children to paint murals and they'd always ask to paint a picture of Tupac, especially in rural communities. He is interesting because his music was terrible. In the 90's hiphop was so good that Tupac seemed a bit of a joke. He ended up as some strange rap Jesus. He was good in Juice though.

I understand but dislike the misspelling.

It's also a title of one of his songs, changing the spelling would be disrespectful I suppose...

Shitty director, doesn't seem like it has much of a budget, and that tacky as fuck logo at the end... I hope it's good, but I'm not feeling confident.
