Derrick Rose -- Drags Tupac Shakur Into Rape Case ... Treat Me Like Him!

12 hours ago | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Derrick Rose is turning to Tupac Shakur in the hopes of getting the judge to force his rape accuser to reveal her identity during the trial ... TMZ Sports has learned.  As we previously reported, Rose believes it's completely unfair for his accuser to hide behind a pseudonym while trashing him and talking about the case to the media.

Billie Joe Armstrong may be a Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and the frontman of Green Day, one the biggest punk bands ever. But in “Ordinary World,” his first leading role, he’s nothing but a failed rock star missing his glory days. 

Directed and written by Lee Kirk, Armstrong stars as Perry, a former punk rocker who is ten years into his band’s “indefinite hiatus” and is still struggling with adjusting to the real world. After his wife (Selma Blair) and his daughter (Madisyn Shipman) forget his 40th birthday, his brother (Chris Messina) takes pity and gives him money to throw the biggest birthday bash. Check out the latest trailer and poster below.

'All Eyez' on this intense Tupac biopic trailer

13 September 2016 6:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective. The trailer for All Eyes on Me is violent, raw, and Shakespearean. The quick cutting is rapid and builds to a crescendo. I'd say this trailer is Nsfw, so watch out. This film is going to be an exposed nerve, which is what Tupac was, so it may end up being appropriate tone for the kind of man he was.   For those of us not of age in the '90s, Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls had a west coast vs, east coast, rapper vs. rapper rivalry that wasn't just a pop culture distraction. Relationships were ruined. Lives were lost. In order to get a complete picture of what happened between Tupac and Biggie, you need to know about both of their lives.  I'd be remiss if I didn't »

The second teaser trailer for the Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez On Me” has dropped, revealing a whole lot more of the movie than the very brief first teaser. With montages of scenes folded in, the new footage starts with the legendary rapper (played by Demetrius Shipp Jr.) criticizing then Vice President Dan Quail during a live performance. “How many y’all heard about what the Vice President said about me?,” he asks the crowd. “Cops kill innocent black folk every day and Quail’s comin’ after me?” Also Read: Johnny Depp Is in Talks to Play Lapd Officer in »

"What happened to me? I got shot five times!" A second teaser for the film All Eyez on Me has arrived, with more footage than the first teaser from the summer. 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.

New Trailer For Tupac Biopic ‘All Eyez On Me’ Shows the Power of Words

13 September 2016 11:29 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Twenty years ago today, the world lost one of its strongest voices, Tupac Shakur. To commemorate the anniversary of his death, after an initial teaser, a second red band teaser has been unveiled for his biopic All Eyez On Me. Helmed by Benny Boom (an incredible director name, if I may say so), Eyez is a chronicling of the life and music of one of the most seminal rappers ever to touch the mic.

Newcomer Demetrius Shipp stars as Tupac (and looks an uncanny amount like the late rapper), who grows up seeing a life of police brutality and violence in his neighborhood, and decides to fight back through his music — as well as telling his story by “painting a picture with a pen.” Check out the new teaser below, along with the first poster.

All Eyez on Me Red Band Trailer Shows Tupac's Dark Side

13 September 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today marks the anniversary of Tupac Shakur's untimely death on September 13, 1996. He died on the streets of Las Vegas, gunned down at the age of 26. Today, we have the red band trailer for All Eyez on Me, the upcoming biopic that recounts his short yet prolific career as one of the most iconic hip-hop artists in history.

Tupac Shakur was shot down as he was driving away from a Mike Tyson boxing match on September 7. He died six days later from four bullet wounds that landed in his chest, hand and thigh. Those moments are recounted here, along with some of the darker moments from Tupac's past. The footage is incendiary and definitely Nsfw.

This is the second trailer to drop for All Eyez on Me, and it once again proves that star Demetrius Shipp Jr. was the perfect choice to play the late rap star, as he »

Tupac Biopic All Eyez On Me Gets A Gripping Red Band Trailer

13 September 2016 10:51 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Now that Straight Outta Compton has shown that there's a big audience out there for serious biopics about hip hop titans, the stage has been set for a film about a figure whose tumultuous life and untimely death casts- perhaps- a shadow even larger than the N.W.A.'s. All Eyez On Me, about the late rap legend Tupac Shakur, is on the way. The production has just released a brand new trailer for the film, and I am happy to share it with you today. 

Here's the Nsfw red band trailer for All Eyez On Me:

I mentioned Straight Outta Compton earlier because that film came seemingly from nowhere last year, and the $28 million earned a stellar $201 million. But even better than that, it was taken seriously by critics, and seen as a serious contender for Oscar glory. Suddenly, the industry has started paying attention to what these films could be, »
