In Eminem’s 2002 autobiographical film 8 Mile, the title was derived from 8 Mile Road, the highway between the African-American city of Detroit and the white suburban communities where Eminem originally lived. The film shows the young rapper attempting to launch his career in hip-hop, a genre at that time dominated by African-Americans.

Upon its release 8 Mile was a huge box-office success as it eventually gathered over two hundred forty million dollars worldwide. It grossed a whopping fifty-one million dollars on its opening weekend in the US. The film was awarded numerous award nominations and wins including an Academy Award for Best Original Song for Lose Yourself. 8 Mile was named one of the best film productions made in 2002 by many publications.
