Now that the distribution is in the bag, Morgan Creek, L.T. Hutton, Summit Entertainment and everyone else involved in the making of Tupac biopic All Eyez on Me can commence to celebrating its impending arrival.
In the newest trailer for the highly anticipated film, Jamal “Gravy” Woolard is seen reprising his Notorious role as The Notorious B.I.G. and having a conversation with Demetrius Shipp, Jr.’s Tupac Shakur at a pivotal time in the movie, before the two rap legends’ relationship infamously soured in the public eye.
The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira also displays a passionate performance as the late Afeni Shakur where she barks on her son about the dangers of the music business he was so actively involved in.
All Eyez on Me will be released on Friday, June 16, 2017, which serves as the late Makaveli’s would-be 46th birthday. It’s directed by Benny Boom and also stars Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as Jada Pinkett, Dominic Santana (Mr. Right) as Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight, Keith Robinson (Dreamgirls) as Atron Gregory, Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead) as Leila Steinberg, and Hill Harper (CSI:NY) as the journalist.
