Watch the New Trailer for the Tupac Biopic 'All Eyez on Me'
On the 20th anniversary of Tupac's death, a new trailer for the rapper's biopic All Eyez on Me has been released. Director Benny Boom shared the teaser Tuesday morning (Sept. 13) on Instagram.
"So how many of y'all heard what the vice president said about me? Cops kill innocent black folk everyday and grills coming after me?," Shakur, portrayed by actor Demetrius Shipp Jr., asks in the clip. "But I'm used to people coming at me. This sh-- been happening my whole life but you know what I gotta say to these mother----ers?" The rapper then raises two middle fingers in the air.
The visual also touches on the 1994 shooting in New York's Quad Studios where Tupac was shot five times (it wasn't until '96 when a shooting in Las Vegas took his life almost a week later). "If a n---a coming at me, he gon' get dealt," says the onscreen 'Pac. Walking Dead star Danai Gurira stars as Afeni Shakur, while Jamal Woodard takes on the role of Notorious B.I.G. in the flick.
The first teaser arrived on what would have been Tupac's 45th birthday in June. No release date for the film has been announced.
