|Tupac Shakur's birthday and the release of the movie All Eyes on Me.|
Early Thread: Tupac Shakur.
Tupac Shakur would have been 46 years old.
Today is the opening of the new biographical movie All Eyez On Me.
The role of Tupac Shakur was played Demetrius Shipp, Jr.
The film was directed by Benny Boom and written by Jeremy Haft, Eddie Gonzalez and Steven Bagatourian. This movie is titled after the fourth album of the same name.
It also features Kat Graham, Lauren Cohan, Hill Harper and Danai Gurira.
Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie an approval of 24% based on 21 reviews, with an average rating of 4.5/10. On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the film has a score of 42 out of 100, based on 11 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews."
The movie follows biopics of the late Tupac Shakur rise to fame. His run-ins with the law. His feud with Notorious B.I.G. and the East Coast rappers. And of course, his tragic death on the Las Vegas strip.
Shakur's death has sparked kookspriacy theories about him being alive. Maybe Tupac might appear at the movie premiere.
Afeni Shakur passed away in 2016. She was the mother of Tupac Shakur. She was co-executive producer of the movie.
It's opening in theaters today.
