Eminem Rents Movie Theater for Fans to Watch His Film ‘Bodied’ for Free
Going to the movies is always a fun experience, but the chance to see a movie for free? That's priceless. Eminem was apparently looking to give his fans that experience when he rented a movie theater in his city to allow fans to watch his new battle rap film, Bodied, tonight.
On Thursday (Nov. 1), Em sent out the invitation on Instagram for fans to enjoy an exclusive viewing of the new movie. "DETROIT! Come through and get #BODIED! I bought out the theater, so tickets on me for the Friday + Saturday @BodiedMovie 6:40pm screenings at the AMC 30 in Sterling Heights. First come first serve. Link in bio for tickets elsewhere," he wrote as his caption.
Bodied, which is produced by the "Kamikaze" rapper, depicts a graduate student named Adam Merkin who decides that he wants to become a battle rapper after studying about the sport for a thesis subject. As the film unfolds, Merkin isolates himself from those around him, while trying to figure out what he wants. The film's cast includes rapper Dumbfounded, ATL's Jackie Long, The Avenger's Walter Perez, The Breakfast Club's Charlamagne Tha God and more.
The movie also includes some dope production, as it's been put together by Em's manager and Def Jam Records CEO Paul Rosenburg, Adi Shankar and Jil Hardin. The screenplay is written by former battle rapper Kid Twist, who is also known as Alex Larsen.
As if he doesn't have enough on his plate with producing his new film, Eminem is focused on his music as well. Last month, he released his visual for "Venom" off his 10th studio album. He is also working with Joyner Lucas on a collaborative project called ADHD.
