Eminem was in a generous mood on Thursday (November 1) when he decided to buy out an entire Detroit theatre for a screening of Bodied. The rap behemoth made the announcement on Twitter.
“DETROIT! Come through and get #BODIED!” he wrote. “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.”
Directed Joseph Kahn — who directed several of Eminem’s videos, including “Without Me” and “Love the Way You Lie” — Bodied tells the story of a graduate student who immerses himself in the competitive rap battle scene.
According to the Detroit News, Em signed on as executive produce the satire late in the process.
“I always had it in the back of my mind that he was going to come on board at some point,” Kahn said. “But you don’t want to go to Em and ask for money or an endorsement on something on big as battle rap, because everybody asks him for things.
“So I made the movie, showed it to him, and he loved it. Then he decided to come on board, and he helped us put the deal together.”
Bodied stars Calum Worthy, Dumbfoundead, Anthony Michael Hall, Jackie Long, Rory Uphold and Charlamagne Tha God with Paul Rosenberg in the role of producer.
The film is in theaters now and hits YouTube Premium on November 28.
