Despite what Jada Pinkett-Smith and 50 Cent may have thought about All Eyez On Me, the Tupac Shakur biopic that hit theaters this weekend, fans didn't stay away.

According to a report from DeadlineEyez exceeded expectations when it came to box office take. Originally projected at anywhere between $15 million and $22 million for its opening weekend, the total intake is expected to hit nearly $10 million over those estimations. It enjoyed a strong opening day of $12.8 million, on a Friday that coincided with Pac's birthday, but Lionsgate should be happy with the film's overall performance.

The film currently has an audience approval rating in the high 60's on Rotten Tomatoes.
