In celebration of the late rapper’s birthday, Morgan Creek Productions revealed the first official teaser trailer for November’s Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me. Despite only being a minute long, the teaser gives viewers both a glimpse at newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. as 2Pac and Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) as his mother, Afeni Shakur. See it here…
2Pac, who has sold over 75 million records worldwide and earned his spot in history as one of the greatest musical artists of all time, would have been 45 years old if he were alive today. Unfortunately, he was killed in a September 1996 drive-by shooting, a murder that remains unsolved to this day.
Some of Shakur’s most well-known and widely acclaimed songs include “California Love,” “Changes,” “Only God Can Judge Me,” “Hit Em Up” and “Dear Mama.”
The cast of All Eyez on Me also includes Jamal Woolard, who will be reprising his role as The Notorious B.I.G. from 2009’s Notorious, Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett, Jamie Hector as Mutulu Shakur, Lauren Cohan as Leila Steinberg and Dominic L. Santana as Suge Knight. The film is directed by Benny Boom and will be released on November 18th, 2016.
