“All Eyez On Me” Hits $27M On Opening Weekend

“Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me enjoyed a strong opening weekend at the box office, racking up an impressive $27 million, according to deadline.

The movie, which had a reported budget of $45 million, had been projected to do slightly better thanks to a remarkably strong opening day. Released first in preview screenings in 2,000 sites across the U.S., the movie had already amassed $12.9 million by June 16 going into Saturday and Sunday.

Compared to another successful Hip Hop biopic, Straight Outta Compton, All Eyez On Me saw far more advanced ticket sales but less in walk-up money, reports Deadline.

The good news is that All Eyez On Me beat its own tracking from the week before its release, which estimated that the movie would gross somewhere between $15 million and $22 million. Coming in at $5 million higher than that, Lionsgate and Codeblack Films can safely call the film a success!”
