In the new 2pac movie, All Eyez On Me, there is a scene where Faith is taking a picture with 2pac and there is an iPhone.

This is chronologically impossible since the iPhone was released in 2007 and the movie was set from 1971 to 1996.

Why the director would allow such inaccuracy in a movie which is supposed to be a biography?

    Money speaks louder than historical accuracy?

    Who would watch more of your movies if you messed up in a legend's biography? So getting a bit of money one time is better than being known as the one who made a great piece?

    @jNg Sadly, that logic does not hold. People will keep coming back every time, no matter how terrible the previous movie was. For proof, see Michael Bay's career.

    @Paulie_D the movie came out in theaters 2 days ago, will be difficult to get an image unless someone leak and/or make it available on torrents

Simply just a movie mistake.. I thought they would have fixed it but since the movie was out 2 days ago (15/06/2017) they cannot fix it. Just sloppy filming in my opinion.

enter image description here

(above is the actual movie mistake)

It could however be sponsored by iPhone but I highly doubt it because according to Forbes the movie is projected to make 53m (USD) and has already made 13m in 2 days!

I cannot think of anymore explanations other than that but I have found a YouTube video that supports your claim :

50 cent posted this on his Instagram:

When you look at this 2 PAC movie, and I know you want to say I'm hating. But there's a scene in it where faith and PAC are taking a picture and THEY HAVE A FUCKING IPHONE IN IT. what the fuck is this man

He deleted the actual post but here is my source: http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2017/06/50-cent-tupac-shakur-movie-all-eyez-on-me-trash/

I could not find any footage of the scene where she does it but I am going to take 50 cents word for it and just say its a blooper.

He put another post up stating his opinion on the movie:

    What does matter how much the film box office is expected to be in relation to Apple sponsoring it?

    They are already making that much money so they wouldn't want to risk making it historically inaccurate (thus making a bad movie) just for some extra money. If they weren't projected to make a big profit then sponsorship deals would have helped. Commented Jun 18, 2017 at 15:12

    "Thank you Apple, we (think we will) have enough money, so we do not want any more" By your logic, no CEO would ever embezzle money!

    Good point but to be fair if I was making a movie projected to make a massive profit I wouldn't bother making the movie inaccurate and subject to criticism just for some extra coins! Commented Jun 18, 2017 at 15:34

    If that picture is legit It isn't a mistake. look at the picture on the phone: that's been edited onto the phone in post production. The image is too clear and the angle is wrong. You don't add an effect 'by accident'. I think that screenshot is probably bogus. Commented Jun 22, 2017 at 11:37
