All Eyez on Me has to be the most anticipated film due in theater this summer. It tells the true and untold story of prolific rapper, actor, poet and activist Tupac Shakur. The film follows Shakur from his early days in New York City to his evolution into being one of the world’s most recognized and influential voices before his untimely death at the age of 25. Against all odds, Shakur’s raw talent, powerful lyrics and revolutionary mind-set propelled him into becoming a cultural icon whose legacy continues to grow long after his passing.
The film stars Kat Graham (portrays Jada Pinkett), Lauren Cohan (portrays Leila Steinberg), Hill Harper, Jamal Woolard (portrays the late Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace), Danai Gurira (portrays the late Afeni Shakur) and introduces Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Tupac Shakur. It is directed by Benny Boom.
This film will be in theaters on June 16, which would have been Tupac Shakur’s 46th birthday.
