Chinua Achebe forces 50 Cent to rename movie


The foundation managing the works of literary icon, Chinua Achebe, have forced 50 Cent to drop the title of his soon-to-be-released multi-million dollar movie, Things Fall Apart.

The foundation threatened to go court over intellectual infringement, 50 Cent allegedly offered to pay  $1million dollars to keep the name, the foundation refused and 50 Cent and his producers had no choice but to change the film's title. It's now - All Things Fall Apart.

Nice work! Continue to see the first time Things Fall Apart was used in a literary work..




The Second Coming
   By William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)
    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.
    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
