All Eyez on Me Trailer: The Untold Story Behind Tupac's Legacy

All Eyez on Me Trailer: The Untold Story Behind Tupac's Legacy
With the June 16 release date just a few months away, CodeBlack Entertainment has debuted a new trailer for the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me. This sneak peek comes just one day before the late rapper will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. This biopic has certainly had its ups and downs through the development process, but the final product could end up being one of the most talked-about movies of the year, centering on the iconic rapper, who would have turned 46 years old on the exact day this biopic will be released.

We first reported on this Tupac biopic way back in 2011, when Antoine Fuqua (The Magnificent Seven) signed on to direct, but he eventually parted ways with the project. John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood) signed on to direct in 2014, but he left a year later, with Carl Franklin (Out of Time

‘All Eyez on Me’ Trailer: Tupac Shakur Biopic Looks To Be This Year’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’

‘All Eyez on Me’ Trailer: Tupac Shakur Biopic Looks To Be This Year’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’
The life of rapper Tupac Shakur has come to the big screen before in the Oscar-nominated documentary “Tupac: Resurrection,” but like Biggie Smalls in “Notorious” and N.W.A. in last year’s breakout hit “Straight Outta Compton,” the rapper is finally getting the biopic treatment with the upcoming feature “All Eyez On Me.” A new trailer for the drama hit the web yesterday to mark the 20th anniversary of Tupac’s death, and it features a great ensemble charting the rapper/actor’s rags-to-riches rise and fall.

Newcomer Demetrius Shipp, Jr. steps into the lead role with uncanny resemblance as the film tracks Shakur’s rise to 1990s rap icon. Money, greedy producers and gang violence all pose threats on his way to the top, and one of the trailer’s most powerful moments comes from Tupac’s mother,

All Eyez on Me Trailer Celebrates the Legacy of Tupac Shakur

If he had not been killed in a Las Vegas drive-by shooting in 1996, iconic rapper/actor Tupac Shakur would be celebrating his 45th birthday today, June 16. In honor of his birthday, the first teaser trailer has been released for All Eyez on Me, the upcoming Tupac biopic set to hit theaters on November 11. This footage gives us our first look at Demetrius Shipp Jr., who makes his feature film debut portraying Tupac Shakur. And man, you might believe Tupac himself has been resurrected!

All Eyez On Me centers on the life of the charismatic yet controversial artist. Rapper, poet, actor and political activist, Tupac shot to fame with 2Pacalypse Now, lauded for its seminal underground vibe and still an inspiration for major artists today. Tupac's politically charged lyrics, inspired by his parents' activism as Black Panthers in the 60s & early 70s, condemned governmental intrusion in black communities. Tupac's increased participation in the East Coast-West Coast Rap rivalry became well documented and avidly followed by his fans. The trailer debuted on radio personality Big Boy's Neighborhood's Instagram.

On September 7, 1996 he was gunned down on a street corner in Las Vegas, where he died 6 days later. His murder was never solved. The supporting cast includes Danai Gurira as Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, Katerina Graham as actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who grew up with Tupac in Baltimore, Lauren Cohan as Leila Steinberg, Annie Ilonzeh as Kidada Jones, Dominic L. Santana as Death Row Records founder Suge Knight and Jamal Woolard as Notorious B.I.G. The movie will hit theaters November 11, going up against Universal's Almost Christmas, Sony's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, 20th Century Fox's Rules Don't Apply and EuropaCorp's Shut In.

Benny Boom (Next Day Air) signed on to direct last year, with production forced to get away quickly. If filming hadn't started by the end of 2015, the production company Morgan Creek would lose Tupac Shakur's music rights, which will revert back to his mother, Afeni Shakur. Principal photography got started at the end of December, with Afeni Shakur herself on board as executive producer.

Afeni Shakur was a political activist and an active member of the Black Panther party, who raised her son to be an avid reader and a political mind that influenced his rap music. This past May, Afeni Shakur passed away at the age of 69, unable to see the film completed and in theaters. With this September marking the 20th anniversary of Tupac's death, we'll have to wait and see if this biopic has any plans to honor his life, alongside his mother's, this fall. In related news, Big Boy's Neighborhood reveals that Sprite will continue their "Obey Your Verse" campaign with cans that will feature lyrics from Tupac Shakur. While we wait for more on this biopic, take a look at the first trailer for All Eyez On Me below.

Tupac Biopic 'All Eyez on Me' Adds 'Walking Dead' Cast Member

Tupac Biopic 'All Eyez on Me' Adds 'Walking Dead' Cast Member
Earlier this week, we reported that The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira signed on to join the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me, portraying the rapper/actor's mother, Afeni Shakur. Today, Deadline reports that she will be joined by another one of her Walking Dead co-stars, Lauren Cohan. The actress will be portraying Leila Steinberg, who would become an important part of Tupac Shakur's life.

Leila Steinberg was just 25 when she met the then 17-year-old Tupac Shakur, after he came to one of her workshops where she mentors young kids to use their talent in hopes of making their lives better. They became instant friends, and the rapper even mentored her on how to become a business manager as he rose through the rap music ranks. Steinberg still mentors kids today, who come from both impoverished backgrounds and affluent lifestyles, through an organization entitled Aim4TheHeart.org.

'Tupac' Biopic Finally Moves Forward with New Director
Morgan Creek's languishing Untitled Tupac Shakur Project has been given a new lease on life, with the studio hoping to get production started this year. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Benny Boom (Next Day Air) is in talks to direct, replacing Carl Franklin, who was attached to direct this summer. If principal photography doesn't start by the end of this year, Morgan Creek will lose Tupac Shakur's music rights, which will revert back to his mother, Afeni Shakur.

John Singleton also offered a parting shot on his Instagram page in April,

Tupac Shakur Biopic Picks Up Speed After Finding New Director

Barring fleeting cameo roles in both 2009’s Notorious and this year’s excellent Straight Outta Compton, rap legend Tupac Shakur is still to be the center of attention in a feature film.

It’s not for want of trying, either; setting up shop at production company Morgan Creek, a biopic about the late, great artist has flirted with development since 2011, when Antoine Fuqua was attached to direct. But after languishing in pre-production amid a string of musical lawsuits, the director quietly exited the film, and those who were chosen to replace him – John Singleton and later Carl Franklin – quickly followed suit out the revolving door.

However, Morgan Creek’s drama has been handed a lifeline today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, music video and commercial director Benny Boom has opened negotiations to helm the troubled project, and Boom took to Instagram to express his own excitement about “upholding the legacy

The company, which has been developing the movie since 2011, is under pressure to begin shooting soon. The music rights will revert to Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur, at the end of the year if the film isn’t in production by then.

Shakur was portrayed by Marcc Rose in this past summer’s hit “Straight Outta Compton.”

Carl Franklin and John Singleton have been attached separately to direct the Tupac project. Morgan Creek attracted Emmett Furla’s Oasis Films in 2013 to co-finance and co-produce, but Emmett Furla filed suit

Jennifer Aniston in Three New Images And Trailer For Life Of Crime

Roadside Attractions has released three new images and trailer for their upcoming film, Life Of Crime.

When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life Of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch.

Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, and Tim Robbins, Life Of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.
