Watch 50 Cent's New Movie 'Things Fall Apart' Trailer Here

I recently told you that the rapper 50 Cent was going to appear in a new crime drama, but I hadn’t heard anything about Things Fall Apart. The movie – loosely based on the life of his childhood best friend – stars 50 Cent. For the role, he had to lose a substantial amount of weight to portray his friend’s battle with cancer.

The movie was written by 50 Cent and will star him as well as Ray Liotta. It is directed by Mario Van Peebles. In Things Fall Apart,50 Cent’s character goes from a dread-locked NFL hopeful to a cancer victim fighting for his life. His performance has already labeled as the “most critically acclaimed role of 50’s career.”

According to reports, 50 Cent had to shed a whopping 54 pounds, and in the movie he looks like an emaciated cancer victim – very realistic. Things Fall Apart had its world premiere this past weekend at the Miami International Film Festival. 

You can watch the unofficial preview for the film here. The sneak peek doesn’t feature a 50 Cent tune though, it features Nelly’s Just a Dream.
