Music biopics seem to be everywhere at the moment. Already this year we’ve seen Born to Be Blue (Chet Baker), I Saw the Light (Hank Williams), Miles Ahead (Miles Davis), Elvis & Nixon and the controversial Nina (as in Simone). And as of today we’re making room for yet another, the long-gestating Tupac Shakur movie All Eyez on Me.
Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays the late rapper, who rose to become one of the most iconic musicians of his generation before getting gunned down at age 25. Benny Boom directed. The first All Eyez on Me trailer has just dropped, on what would have been Shakur’s 45th birthday. Watch it below.
