50 Cent Talks Movies & DVD Releases

Posted By on June 24, 2010

     Rapper, slash actor, 50 Cent recently spoke about the movie business and the recent backlash he's been getting on some of his films going straight to dvd instead of theaters. The G-Unit general says that he actually makes more money when they don't reach theaters adding a lot of money is wasted promoting movies for the big screen.

     "They'll spend a $120 million on a film or a whole bunch of money making a film and then a whole bunch of money promoting it a year before it actually comes out and the money they get back in theaters is just the money they spent," 50 explained. "And then it goes straight-to-dvd and everything is profit there. Some of the movies I've done recently, I was financing and I've already seen a 60 percent return on what I've [been] involved with. They don't understand, they're looking at it and going, 'Well, it went straight-to-dvd,' and they don't realize I'm gonna get another $800,000 off each one of these projects. You can sit there and say 'It went straight-to-dvd' my a** … They'll try to figure a way to discredit whatever you do because I come from that. I have a lot, so I'm conditioned to the people who haven't been through that and can't get to the next level…If they look at their favorite artists, they don't have an opportunity to be in a film…"
