Eminem brings rap battles to the big screen.
In 8 Mile, Eminem's well-received, mostly autobiographical movie from 2002 is known for its galvanizing depictions of rap battles. Those verbal sparring matches were some of the most compelling action in the film. Now, Mr. Mathers is bringing a spiritual sequel to those scenes into multiplexes later this year with Bodied.
Em's latest big-screen endeavor got an intense new trailer today, which literally puts the viewer on the receiving end of some seriously cutting freestyle insults. For example, in referring to a gangly, glasses-wearing boy, a fearsome-looking rapper spits: "If Harry Potter had sex with Jeffrey Dahmer, you'd be their lesbian daughter." I'm not sure it makes total sense, but damn man, that was cold.
Check out the full trailer below.
