6.). The Mummy 

Also, former Vibe journalist Kevin Powell wants the movie that opened June 16 via Lionsgate pulled from theaters. As well as making sure no eyes are on All Eyez, The Real World: New York alum also wants a chunk of the more than $31 million the Benny Boom-helmed pic has made at the box office since its release on what would have been Shakur’s 46th birthday.

On June 13, 2017, in an internationally broadcast interview with The Breakfast Club, Defendant Mr. Hutton stated that ‘all of the interviews’ of Tupac Shakur were used to make the Infringing Work,” says the complaint about All Eyez producer Lenton Terrell Hutton. “There are stories with fictional characters and re-worked narratives that are unique to the Original Work that appear in the Infringing Work,” the 16-page filing asserts, pointing a curled finger at Powell’s own leaps of truth efforts then towards the movie (read it here).
