The Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me finally gets a release date, June 16, 2017.
Good news, the Tupac movie All Eyez On Me finally has a release date. The not-so-good news, it’s not coming out for another seven months.
Dominic Santana, the actor portraying Suge Knight if the film, posted the date on Instagram with a special message for all of the impatient fans.
Get ready it’s coming. And please no whining about the date. It’s Pac’s b day. We’re all anxious for it to come out but people gotta remember it’s a major film and there’s a lot of process to releasing major films. Because it was Tupac a lot of buzz was created word of mouth even while we were filming which usually doesn’t happen until a movie is about to come out. This was no regular movie so you’ve been hearing about it since we started. It’s actually right on par with the timing to release a major film after you wrap shooting. So relax and look for the formal announcement soon and actual promotion to start coming out.
As producer L.T. Hutton pointed out weeks ago, even though the trailers teased fans that the movie was “coming soon,” the film never had an official release date.
“The release date is coming very soon,” he said earlier this month. “I’m going to make that announcement. But we didn’t push back. We never had the release date. We never set a release date. We’re gonna set that very soon.”
Looks like Santana beat him to the punch. June 16, 2017 is what would have been Tupac’s 46th birthday.
