Things Fall Apart gets a wonderfully bad trailer


Now the trailer you just watched isn’t official so that might excuse why it looks like 50 Cent put it together on his own over the weekend when he realized he had nothing to show on his TV appearance last night because that is probably what happened.

This trailer for 50 Cents upcoming Things Fall Apart, which follows a football star who gets cancer, is so full of terrible that you actually might be tempted to watch it twice. You probably won’t. From the melodrama to the horrible editing to the odd musical cues, it’s all just a little bit of wonderful in the worst way possible.

As for the film itself? I can’t say it looks any better than a Hallmark channel film, except with a black family instead of Jennifer Love Hewitt.
