Eminem Shares Trailer For New Rap Battle Movie ‘Bodied’
The full uncensored trailer for the Eminem produced move 'Bodied' dropped this week.
The plot to the movie might sound familiar now that you know Eminem is the producer. A white college student gets into the world of battle rap and ends up unexpectedly rising through the ranks. In the process he alienates all of his college friends and family.
Sure the college part is different from the 8 Mile model, but the rest of it sounds fairly similar.
I think the thing that really shocked me after watching the trailer is that fact that Em chose the nerdy co-star from the Disney show Austin & Ally to be the star!
If anyone would have told me that Dez would eventually be lyrically dismantling people in a freestyle battle I would have laughed in their face. I was forced to watch an ungodly amount of that show when it was on because my kids loved it.
The movie does have a ton of heavy hitters on board though lead by director Joseph Khan. Bodied also features Jackie Long, Charlamagne Tha God, and Anthony Michael Hall.
I definitely don't want to sound like I'm hating on the movie. I'll pay the YouTube premium price to see it, and judging from the trailer, it'll be a good way to spend 90 minutes.
'Bodied' will be in theaters on November 2nd and on YouTube Premium November 28th.
