8 Mile, the movie about Eminem became the #1 movie on Box Office on this Day!
8 Mile is a must watch film for rap fans, who want to delve into the intricacies of the making of the real Slim Shady. Thanks to the collaboration between writer Scott Silver and director Curtis Hanson, this movie was able to leave a mark at the UK box office. Besides, it was for this film that Eminem recorded his fourth hit single “Lose Yourself”; the song won an Academy Award for Best Original Song and the Grammys awarded it for Best Male Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Song. It also ranked 93rd on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs list.
On the other hand; when The Lord of the Rings, which is the Holy Grail for fantasy novel fans, was translated from J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel onto film, it played pied-piper to all the novelist’s fans. However, 8 Mile was the other film in theatres at that time and when the box office was asked to name a winner: In this day in music, 8 Mile, starring Eminem toppled The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers from its four-week hold at the top of the UK box office.
