Tupac biopic ‘All Eyez On Me’ gets new trailer on 20th anniversary of rapper’s death

Legendary rapper Tupac Shakur was killed 20 years ago this week, and the anniversary of his death was marked with the release of a new trailer for the upcoming biopic about the late hip-hop artist, All Eyez On Me.

Titled in honor of Shakur’s 1996 album — widely regarded as one of the greatest rap albums of all time — All Eyez On Me casts Demetrius Shipp, Jr. as Shakur and chronicles the musician’s rise to fame, which ended in a drive-by shooting that took his life on September 13, 1996. The film is helmed by Next Day Air director Benny Boom.

The new trailer features actors portraying the real-life personalities from the music and entertainment world who populated Shakur’s musical career and all-too-brief life, including infamous music producer Suge Knight, rapper Biggie Smalls, and other well-known names and faces from the hip-hop industry.

Along with newcomer Shipp in the lead role, All Eyez On Me also stars Danai Gurira as Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, as well as Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett, Dominic L. Santana  as Suge Knight, Annie Ilonzeh as Kidada Jones, Lauren Cohan as Lelia Steinberg, Grace Gibson as Faith Evans, and Harold House Moore as Dr. Dre. Notorious star Jamal Woolard also reprises his role as Biggie Smalls, the rapper also known as The Notorious B.I.G., from that 2009 biopic of the musician.

The first trailer for All Eyez On Me was released June 16, on what would have been Shakur’s 45th birthday.

All Eyez On Me currently has no scheduled release date, but previous reports indicated it could hit theaters in November. Production on the film concluded in April.

Missing’s ending, explained
A young woman talks on her cellphone in Missing.

The sleeper hit movie of 2023, and soon to be one of the most popular movies on Netflix, doesn't involve superheroes or possessed demons like in Evil Dead Rise; instead, it focuses on a young teenager who uses all of the technology at her disposal to find a lost relative. Missing is a sequel of sorts to 2018's Searching, which told a story about a father (John Cho) who is desperate to find his missing daughter. It became a surprise critical and commercial hit and was praised for its unique way of telling the entire story through a computer screen.

While set in the same world, Missing tells a new story about a teenage girl (Storm Reid) who quickly realizes her mother has disappeared under very strange circumstances. Utilizing the power of social media and Google, she tries to track her down while also uncovering some mysteries about her past. If you are interested in having Missing's ending explained, you've come to the right place!
