Its been fifteen years since Eminem documented his own rap-battle roots in 8 Mile, and now he is returning to filmmaking with Bodied.

The film is billed as an "exploration of the world's most artistically brutal sport" with a satirical take on race relations in the US, and the first look certainly pulls no punches.

The trailer focuses on a white twenty something trying to break into the underground scene. And before you say that sounds all too familiar, this time round Eminem will be remaining behind the scenes as a producer.

Instead you come face-to-face with characters Megaton and MC Goggles, with a voiceover that states: "how sensitive the climate is towards racism and appropriation."

The film is based on a script by Alex "Kid Twist" Larsen, and will be directed by Joseph Kahn who has produced music videos for the likes of Dr. Dre and Wu-Tang Clan.

Charlemagne tha God, Debra Wilson, Anthony Michael Hall, Shoniqua Shandai, Alter Perez, Rory Uphold, Jackie Long, and Callum Worthy will star in the film, alongside a roster of rappers such as Loaded Lux, Dizaster, Dumbfoundead and Hollow Da Don.

Bodied will premiere on 7 September at the Toronto International Film Festival.
