Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The title is a reference to an actual road in Michigan that separates Detroit proper from seven northern suburbs. Eminem grew up near 8 Mile Road and also filmed parts of his "The Way I Am" video on 8 Mile.
  • Curtis Hanson asked Eminem to dye his hair back to his natural colour so that the audience would relate him to as Jimmy Rabbit, instead of his Eminem persona.
  • One of the extras, Ali Miyzaan, was shot outside a Detroit theater on the film's opening night.
  • Scenes that take place at the "Shelter", an actual club in Detroit located in the basement of St. Andrews Hall, were actually filmed in an empty warehouse because the actual "Shelter" looked too dressed up for shooting.
