Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez On Me” came out the gates to a strong opening weekend at the box office, bringing in an impressive $27 million, according to Deadline.

The film reportedly had a budget of $45 million, and did slightly better than what was projected at $15 and $22 Million, bringing in  $27 million thanks to an impressive $12.9 million on it’s opening day, Pac’s birthday.

The movie is coming under much from critics, especially from Pac’s close friend Jada Pinkett-Smith accusing the movie of being dishonest on Twitter. Film producer L.T. Hutton responded to her, saying that the movie’s goal was to show “who Tupac was, who he wanted to be and who he had to be to survive the world that he was introduced into.”  

Go out and see the film for your self and make your own opinion about it, it’s important we support films about our rap icons.
