Will 50’s Big-Screen Debut Spark Violence In Theaters?

The New York Daily News reports theater owners are reportedly concerned that ’s big-screen debut ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin” may inspire copycat violence, with some multiplexes indicating they may bring in extra security. “Concerns like this can apply to any movie with violence, though ‘Get Rich’ may get a little more scrutiny because of the reputation of the star,” says Paul Dergarabedian, president of the box-office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations. “But all this does, really, is serve to create a mythology around the movie. It may create a mystique around it and make it a success, similar to 50 Cent’s musical persona.”
