Don’t think for a second that the success of Straight Outta Compton isn’t gonna spawn 100 shitty rapper biopics, because it definitely is. I was extremely skeptical that this Tupac flick was going to be any good when they announced it so soon after the N.W.A film’s run and then said they were gonna have Gravy reprise his role as Biggie. The fact that Afeni was heavily involved before her untimely passing last month, and the very capable Benny Boom was directing, still didn’t convince me. All that said, this trailer does not look horrible and I am now cautiously optimistic.
Tupac would have turned 45 today. All Eyez On Me arrives in theaters on November 11th.
