Watch: Another Trailer for Benny Boom's 'All Eyez on Me' Tupac Biopic
"Son. This ain't just about you. Like all black men, you have a bullseye on your back." Another new trailer has debuted for the film All Eyez on Me, which we've been writing about since since the first trailer hit last year. The film profiles the life of successful American rapper Tupac "2Pac" Shakur, who has killed in a drive by shooting at the age of 25 in 1996. Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays the late great musician, and the cast includes Danai Gurira, Kat Graham, Annie Ilonzeh, Dominic L. Santana and Keith Robinson. This trailer also features some shots of Jamal Woolard as Biggie. This is a very powerful trailer, and I dig the quote it ends on. "I want the people to know the real story." I'm actually looking forward to seeing this.
Here's the third official trailer for Benny Boom's All Eyez on Me, direct from the film's 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 on June 16th, 2017 this summer. Still interested?

Looking forward to this....still amazes me that Tupac was on 26 when he had died and had made so much music and was already an icon

He was somebody and something, no question about it, but definitely not some revolutionary for ages. However, he didn't end up as a tragic figure without a good reason. It just wasn't epic. Which still makes him worthy of film or of memory of a man that wanted a better world. Although he definitely wasn't the nicest person on the world. And that still counts for something ...

This looks outstanding. Plus I'm extremely happy to see they recast Jamal Woolard as Biggie. If you haven't seen the film, and are looking forward to seeing All Eyez On Me, I'd highly recommend watching the Biggie biopic Notorious with Woolard in the role as Biggie. He's a wonderful actor and it's so great to see him back in the role that made me a fan of his in the first place. I just really hope that this film can get him more movie roles because this man's got sheer talent.

"More money, more problems" is one of the greatest truths ever told.
