Get ready to lose yourself. 8 Mile is coming to Netflix next month. The Oscar-winning flick starring Eminem will begin streaming on December 1st.
The 2002 flick is inspired by Em’s true life story. Aspiring rapper Jimmy “B-Rabbit” (Eminem) moves back to Detroit and faces many challenges. He overcomes life’s roadblocks, starts rap battling, and his career took off.
Other than the “Walk on Water” rapper the film stars Kim Basinger Mekhi Phifer, and the late Brittany Murphy.
The film’s song “Lose Yourself” went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2003, as well as a Grammy for Best Rap Song. Eminem also took home the Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Actor in a Drama or Action Adventure, as well as Choice Breakout Star. In addition, he won an MTV Movie and TV Award in the category for Best Male Performance.
This year marked the 15th anniversary of the 8 Mile’s debut. It’s coming on Netflix just in time for the cold weather. Netflix and chill, anyone?
