8 Mile is 20 years old.
The film, which featured Eminem in his acting debut, was released in movie theaters on November 8, 2002.
To put that into perspective (and make you feel old):
- Eminem's co-star, Brittany Murphy, has been dead for more than a decade.
- Nelly's song "Dilemma" (featuring Kelly Rowland) was at the top of the music charts in November of 2002.
- Most people's cellphones didn't have cameras.
- Saddam Hussein was still in power. The invasion of Iraq didn't begin until five months later.
- The song "Beautiful" by pop star Christina Aguilera was released eight days after 8 Mile hit the big screen.
- Myspace, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter didn't exist.
- Singer Billie Eilish was just a toddler. Greta Thunberg and Olivia Rodrigo weren't even born yet.
- TV shows such as "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" and "Dexter's Laboratory" were still running.
- George W. Bush was only two years into his first presidential term.
