50 Cent Film "All Things Fall Apart" DVD Trailer Released

UPDATE #2: The DVD is slated to hit stores on February 14th.

In an effort to promote the upcoming movie, Things Fall Apart, a trailer of the Mario Van Peebles-directed drama has been released. The film is the brainchild of 50 Cent, who co-wrote the script with Brian A. Miller and stars as Deon Barnes. Things Fall Apart has been drawing attention since the summer of 2010, when photos emerged of an emaciated 50 Cent; the rapper lost over 60 pounds preparing for the role.

As Barnes, 50 plays the role of a top-tier college football player who is stricken with cancer. Prior to playing the scrawny version of Barnes, who was presumably undergoing radiation treatment and/or chemotherapy, 50 portrays a dreadlocked version of the lead character. According to Fif, a personal friend with cancer inspired the story. Things Fall Apart is one of several films created under 50 Cent’s Cheetah Vision imprint—part of a $200 million joint venture with Lions Gate.

By attempting to transform himself from a 35-year-old to a Heisman hopeful in his early 20’s, can 50 Cent increase his acting profile? So far, according to Metacritic.com, which averages dozens of individual movie ratings from top critics, 50 Cent’s last three theatrical releases scored an average of 41 out of a possible 100. 50 briefly spoke about the movie at the Miami International Film Festival.

“I hope people get a chance to get to see how excited I am about challenging myself in different ways,” 50 explained. “Because it’s not an action film—it’s a family drama—I was advised not to do it.”

[March 11]

UPDATE: Image Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to Mario Van Peebles’ All Things Fall Apart, which stars 50 Cent and Ray Liotta. The flick, which has been screened at several festivals, will release to theaters in early 2012 followed by a home entertainment, VOD, digital and broadcast release through One Village.

[September 9]

UPDATE #2: The official DVD trailer for All Things Fall Apart has been unveiled. Watch the trailer below ahead of the DVD's February 14th release.

    Saw this movie last night. It's a good story, but was poorly directed. Seems like all the conflicts were just randomnly thrown around in the movie. Mario Van Peebles sucked at directing this movie. Other than the fine ass character, Sharon, the movie didn't hold my interest.

    • Dana

      I agree with you whole-heartedly. I was never a real fan of 50's music. But you cannot deny this man's hustle. Gotta love him for that. Some of these wanna-be's should take note. By the way this movie is good! Saw it on BET. Honestly I didn't expect much, but it was actually a good movie.

      Yeah, because there's never been a film about an athlete getting cancer before. The movie looks like shit, so the "topic" of the movie is moot. Nobody will give a shit about the topic of a movie that they never watch.

    • jtyson

      Everybody keeps saying "The plot looks deep!" and "The topic is inspirational!", while conceding that 50 looks like an idiot in the movie. First off, the topic IS NOT deep. It's about an athlete that gets cancer and overcomes it. It's sad, not deep. It's been done about a dozen times on film, so if it seems original it's because you either don't watch a lot of movies or just watch a lot of shitty movies. Secondly, if the movie is bad then what does it matter what the topic is? Movies don't get judged based on what they're about, they get judged based on how well they convey a story. This movie looks like a does a shit job of that. If Martin Luther King were a white, stuttering midget with a French accent, would anyone remember his "I Have A Dream" speech? No, because nobody would have listened to it. It doesn't matter what this movie's about or what the message is, because it looks like shit and most people will never watch it as a result.

    • 2SWEET4ya

      first of all if u gonna wish someone dies in a "whole" we need to know the difference between "whole, and HOLE" no one needs to wish death on the next, that can come back at ya and bite ya in da @ss. It looks like a very good movie, and yes there are some shallow individuals that miss the entire plot of the movie and focus on a charater's looks. those peoples opinions dont matter. Actually, i cant wait to see the movie. ive been waitin for over a year! I hope he doesnt have any health problems in the future for losing the weight the way he did.

    • d is for dammit you dumb

      I guess "Empire State of Mind" wasn't a hit for Jay? dumbass The movies looks cool though, minus the dreads. I like how 50 makes his own lane.

    • Dumb50hatersneedteaching

      The 50 haters just showing how they hate to see rappers doing they own shit instead of staying where they are. 50s got a brain fully functioning, not a swollen head thats been ballooned up by crackers who don't give a fuck about niggas cept to ride on their name and empty dumb rappers' pockets so they get involved in lame, brokeass nigga shit like the 'J' hotels that were shut down and left Jay Z with a loan he aint want to repay like a bitch. On paper 50s got less money but he aint owing shit to anybody, he's diversifying his skills by acting, and he aint 40 yrs plus getting disrespected by all but some fools in the Black community who think everybody has their stan position on Jay Z. Jay Zs owned by the crackers, when they don't want him around he'll be gone. Note how 50 aint accountable to anybody but his self, Jay Z wants in on acting but he is such an ugly muthfucka and could never act in his life except when he lies to the cameras about 'writing' Dream Hampton's book and pretends to be in a real muthafucking marriage with Beyonce just to get more paper. 50 gets money by his self and betcha life hes got more profit from his fortune, not the loans and bad debts that Jay Z got. Fortune and Forbes aint give you the lowdown on that shit - they just give the paper accounting minus the reality. 50 will never go broke, Jay Zs been living beyond his lame asses means and thats why the ugly nigga been running round like the Village People opening for U2 who aint had a hit for years and won't again. 50 Cent just laughs at y'all and he aint afraid to take acting and other artistic risks. Power to him.

    • Nizz

      You sound like a woman. You must have a lot of sand in your pussy.

  • Why?

    It looks like a tasteless parody trailer of a real movie. Of 50, what did you do? It seriously looks home-made. He's playing high school athlete? Isn't he in his mid thirties? He's an alright looking guy, but he is deluding himself if he thinks he could could pass for 17. no wonder he was "dating" chelsea "tight face" handler. he had nothing to lose and some attention to gain. hear that? sounds like NADA...that's the sound of 50's career.

  • Greggo

    I don't like that they bit the name off the classic Chinua Achebe novel. I don't see how the themes of a clash between tradition and change in an African village can be related to this story, so therefore they should of stayed away from using that title. Come on man, don't trivialize black culture and one of the great black novels. The trailer looks pretty bad, but it is good to see 50 dedicated to the role. This will either launch his dramatic acting career or end it depending on his performance. Unfortunately, I have a feeling this will flop big time.

  • Dumbrappersneedteaching

    50 deserve respect for doing something diffrent than talking shit like the fat ol copsucking muthafuck fake gangsta Rick Ross, putting out the same ol same ol music that Jay Z doing (HAM? Pigshit son), making the tired raps that nearly every muthafucking rapper doing cept for Eminem. 50s a risk taker, the nigga deserves respect. He's moving on to the next level, acts his age unlike oldass Jay Z runnin round looking like the Village People to 3/4 empty stadiums. 50s movin on up while other rappers saying stale shit and doin shit that they need be ashamed of at their age.

    • hater's hater

      acts his age? like continuously talking shit bout Oprah (the dog), taking pictures of his money stacks, and making jokes about the tsunami tragedy in japan, on twitter? just to name a few examples. fuck outta here

    Well, I'm sorry to say that I actually SAW this movie at the Miami Film Festival... This Trailer pretty much shows you the entire film... It plays out like a bad after school special... I applaud 50 for the weight loss, but it doesn't make his performance any better...

    I hope this will run for the oscars cause it looks like a real masterpiece, fifty is outstanding

  • BlazeDatIshUp

    I'll see it either on DVD or the theatre, though I'm not fond of theatre ticket prices these days...... No matter what I give 50 props for going out the box and not just playing another gangbanger, drug dealer type of character over and over.. Most other rappers do that shit..

  • shammgod

    This trailer is horrible. Honestly, i may never see this movie after watching this trailer. I don't believe 50 lost so much weight for a move that looks like it is straight to dvd.

  • Frankie

    This movie trailer is poorly edited, it looks low budget and terrible. I aint got nothing against 50 I just feel bad for him how bad the direction looks. He needs to link up with a good director and a good script writer. Because this looks like HOT GARBAGE

  • papabearATL

    A lot of y'all need to get your lives together, lol. If Fiddy was playing a hardcore gangster you would hate, he's trying to play an inspirational role and y'all step on that, too? Read the article, he's under the Lions Gate umbrella that isn't a bad place to be. What's the last 'semi-original' idea to come out of hollywood in the last 10-years? Get the hate out of your hearts people, I haven't bought a single 50 album, catch his movies on cable but, I tryna knock a dude down just because, let him grind, let him inspire. Have you seen todays youth?

    • jtyson

      None of what you said matters. So we should ignore the fact that the movie looks terrible, has horrible production value, an actor that appears laughable in his role as the lead, and a script that sounds like it was lifted from a straight-to-DVD Disney movie just because he has the money to fund an "inspirational" biopic that allows him to be glorified? If he truly wanted to inspire, he would have produced the film and let a real actor handle to acting duties. He can't do that though, because he has to be the man. He doesn't want to be behind the scenes. And as a result of his narcissism and desire for attention, the movie looks like hot baby shit. If I make a rap album about fiscal responsibility and practicing safe sex, the message doesn't matter if I suck at rapping, the beats are whack, and my album cover is a picture of me looking dumb as hell. It's still a shitty album, and likewise this will probably be a shitty movie.

  • DC

    For real ya'll? I'm not even a 50 fan (rap-wise), but I have to give him credit for this. The man got rid of all his tats and dropped 60 pounds for the role! Try to see him as Curtis Jackson the actor and not 50 Cent the rapper. I respect this. This isn't like "Streets Is Watching" or some other bootleg rapper movie. He put his heart into this and ya'll should respect it. I'm not saying go see it, but don't knock it off the trailer.

  • Sean who?

    when i saw this trailer i got real curious about who produced this film. turn out 50 cent and a business partner produced the film it seems really low budget trying to sell off 50's name i think it could of been good if a real studio picked it up and funded it correctly.

      @rererer completely agreed. Ikenna you are a complete retard. Everyone hides behind this "if you don't like it, you're a hater" bullshit these days. Things need to be hated on, so that people don't go around claiming lil wayne is the greatest rapper ever, and 50 cent is a brilliant actor (both of which are so far from the truth, that its laughable). We need to get back to a time when u can call a whack mc, a whack mc cuz thats what he is, and not be labeled a "hater" for it. Are people "haters" just cuz they keep it real? If so, then myself, and every other black dude on earth are all haters (by your dumbass account). So, on behalf of every real person who actually knows good art in this world---> 50 cent is a fuckin' hack (at both rapping and acting), this trailer is a piece of shit, and most people on the same talent-level as 50 cent are standing near the highway, holding cardboard signs...oh wait, they are probably more talented than him too (shot out to Ted Williams).
