Roadshow Films has dropped the local trailer for ALL EYEZ ON ME, the biopic of West Coast rapper Tupac ‘2Pac’ Shakur, whose life was cut short in a Las Vegas shooting in 1996. It hits Australian cinemas 15 June 2017.
ALL EYEZ ON ME is the epic life story of legendary music artist, Tupac Shakur. The movie, helmed by director Benny Boom, and produced by LT Hutton (Morgan Creek Productions), chronicles the rapper / actor’s life from his humble beginnings through his turbulent rise to fame and subsequent violent demise. The film stars Demetrius Shipp Jr., Danai Gurira, Kat Graham, Dominic L. Santana and Jamal Woolard.
2Pac has previously been portrayed in various films from Too Legit: The MC Hammer Story (Lamont Bentley), through to 2009’s Notorious (Anthony Mackie) and 2015’s Straight Outta Compton (Marcc Rose). Relative newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. already looks set to have a breakout performance in the film, with an uncanny ability to capture the likeness and personality of the performer.
