Few artists have entered — and stayed — in the popular imagination over the last few decades like Tupac Shakur, whose 1996 murder only grew his legend further. Two decades later, his story is being told once again in Benny Boom’s “All Eyez on Me,” a biopic starring Demetrius Shipp, Jr. Watch the new trailer below.

Shipp, Jr. bears a striking resemblance to the gone-too-soon rapper, poet and actor, whose lyrics expressed a fixation with his own mortality. 2Pac has been the subject of numerous documentaries — including the Academy Award–nominated “Tupac: Resurrection” and Nick Broomfield’s “Biggie & Tupac” — and been portrayed in other biopics, including “Straight Outta Compton.”

Here we see the highs and lows of his life and career, including the lead-up to his murder in Las Vegas after a boxing match; whether the film speculates as to who was responsible for the unsolved crime remains to be seen.
