1,200 people packed out the Toronto Film Festival auditorium to watch.
Eminem recently announced his return to film with new movie ‘Bodied’, that uses battle rap to address race relations in America.
The elusive rapper, who was the star of 8 Mile, has turned his hands to producing and appears to have another success.
The film, directed by Joseph Kahn, features cameos from Calum Worthy, Charlamagne Tha God, Jackie Long, and various battle rappers like Dizaster, Loaded Lux and Dumbfounded.
The new movie premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and was reportedly a big hit, with critics and festival-goers giving the film great reviews on social media.

The film’s director also recently confirmed that the two-hour film will include new songs by Eminem and Dr. Dre.
"By the time it's bought and ready for distribution (ICM is selling worldwide rights), Eminem will contribute a number of songs to the soundtrack," Kahn told The Hollywood Reporter.
“[Em and longtime manager Paul Rosenburg] have enlisted Dr. Dre for a couple of songs."
There is currently no release date for the film but if the reviews are an indication of its quality, fans have something great to look forward to.
