Flip and watch the First Look teaser trailer for the Tupac Biopic ‘All Eyez On Me’…
Happy Birthday Tupac!
The trailer features Danai Gurira, star of ‘The Walking Dead’ who plays Tupac’s late mother Afeni, who died last month at the age of 69.
In the trailer you hear Gurira’s voiceover says:
“This ain’t just about you. Like all black men, you have a bullseye on your back. They are going to give you the tools that you need to destroy yourself.”
“Above all else, to thine own self be true. Now, let me see your spirit.”
Playing in the background is a downbeat version of ‘Ambitionz Az a Ridah’, as clips of Tupac performing on stage, an FBI raid and a chanting crowd feature in the short clip.
Here is the YouTube trailer:
All Eyez On Me has had a troubled inception, with at least three directors attached themselves to the project and then departing over the five years since it was announced, including Antoine Fuqua, Carl Franklin, and John Singleton.
In the end, Benny Boom obviously was the perfect fit.
We hope that this movie is truthful and that we don’t get another Notorious, which left out all the REAL details and the ugly side of Biggie Smalls. Do you think All Eyez On Me will meassure up to Straight Outta Compton?
Could it be better?
‘All Eyez On Me’ hits the big screen on November 11, 2016.
