At long last, Mike Tyson is making his return to the big screen!
Well, sort of.
Last year, the iconic boxer did a one-man Broadway show titled Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth where he opened up about his criminal past and his relationships throughout his career.
But if you missed all of the 11 shows, don't worry! Because Spike Lee filmed the whole thing and will be releasing it as an HBO documentary by the same name on November 16th!
The first trailer for the movie was recently dropped, and just like the live show promised, it's filled with a balance of hard hitting moments as well as a few laughs here and there!
We can't wait to see if for ourselves!
Ch-ch-check out the first trailer for the documentary (above)!
Boxing legend Mike Tyson recently opened up and admitted that he had been battling alcoholism for years and said he was "on the verge of dying."
Well the former heavyweight champ is hoping to turn things around, and it looks like he's in a much better place now!
Mike was recently spotted out and about with some of his friends in Beverly Hills, and he treated himself to a little shopping spree on Rodeo Drive!
Nothing soothes the soul like a little retail therapy!!
Mike has been clean for about 20 days now, and we're glad to see he's doing so well and finding healthier ways to spend his time!
Keep it up!
Ch-ch-check out more pics of his stroll down Rodeo Drive (below)!

Addiction is such a nasty, nasty beast!
And it's one Mike Tyson is struggling to fight.
The famous boxer surprisingly admitted at a press conference this weekend that he's been so seriously addicted to alcohol that he's been near death!
During the conference where he was promoting his upcoming fight card with Iron Mike Productions, Mike admitted:
Mike Tyson must have had one heck of a meal, because he was in a GREAT mood after he grabbed a bite at Ago in West Hollywood!
The former heavyweight champ first signed a pair of boxing gloves for a fan who apparently walks around with his trusty gloves at ALL times!!
Then, he left a VERY generous $40 dollar tip for the valet after they brought him his car!
And to top off his list of good deeds, we hear he saved a box of kittens from a burning building on his way home!!
Ok, so we might have made that last part up! But seriously, who knew Mike had such a heart of gold??

Hmm… We don't know about this. LOLz
Mike Tyson has been touring his autobiographical one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth around the U.S. and has also starred in the movie, The Hangover, and now that he has a few acting gigs under his belt, he thinks he's ready for… wait for it, SHAKESPEARE!!
The onetime heavyweight champion of the world said:
Mike Tyson is a polarizing figure — if he isn't being given rave reviews for his one-man Broadway show, then his involvement in movies and advertising is being protested against because he's been convicted of sexual assault. The one thing that goes beyond doubt, though, is that he's taking his role as a father seriously.
We have seen nothing but love from him for his little ones. In a new interview, here's what he said about them and what he wants them to learn from his life:
Everybody knows how amazing Will Smith looks in a suit… ESPECIALLY the suit from Men in Black!!
Do you wanna look that rad? Well you're in luck! the New Village Leadership Academy is auctioning the one he wore in MIB3 off! That means you can snag it for yourself for a good cause!
The only issue is that it's probably tailored to Will. Bummer. You'd either have to ruin the authenticity a bit to get it to fit you, or just like, keep it in a glass case somewhere to show it off! Either way it's worth it because the New Village Leadership Academy (NVLA) is dedicated to the cultivation of powerful, self-educating leaders - men and women of virtue, wisdom and courage!
Here's how they're described:
