It seems the scramble to take down posters for 50 cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin wasn't fast enough. The posters - criticised for being a little too heavy on the 'rah rah guns are great' side of tactless - have been pulled, but the film itself has been pulled from Homestead, Pennsylvania cinemas following a shooting there. A man was murdered after seeing the film; he'd got into an argument in the toilets.

If some of the early reviews of the movie are to be believed, you might prefer to be shot before going in rather than after you come out - the film is already being slammed as "the worst hip-hop movie ever made."

I think the movie was great. I don't understand why people think because of the movie this guy was shot. everyone know what the movie was about so how could anyone have expected a different kind of poster.
