Slim Shady revealed a new track from the potential blockbuster flick’s trailer through Twitter Thursday (June 12).

The almost three-minutes trailer previews a new song by Eminem.

Last month, Em and director Spike Lee released their “Headlights” music video.
Directed by Spike Lee, who hasn’t shot a music video since Michael Jackson‘s “This Is It” in 2009, the majority of the clip is shot from the first-person perspective of Eminem’s mother, interspersed with video clips and photo album pictures from Eminem’s youth. The video climaxes with the rapper and his mother meeting on his driveway for a heartwarming embrace. (Huffington Post)
In 2011, Slim Shady hinted at his plans to make a return to the big screen after debuting in 2002’s 8 Mile blockbuster hit.
“There are some things in the [works], a couple of scripts,” Eminem answered. “I guess it’s more so of just waiting now to see how they come together. Obviously it’s gotta be something that I feel is dope enough to make me want to say, ‘OK, let me put the mic down for a second and go do this movie.’ There are some things that are in the works. I guess we’ll just see how they come together.” (RapFix)
