Rapper Snoop Dogg is quietly delighted his new movie SOUL PLANE is already topping black market DVD charts three days after its release - because he thinks piracy actually helps boost films.

The star's latest film comedy opened in America on Friday (28MAY04), and is already a hot property as a pirated DVD.

He says, "I don't think the bootleg is going to stop anything. I think people will want to see more of this because, to me, a bootleg is like a buzz.

"A buzz will get you feedback and the feedback on the bootleg is that it's dope. So those who didn't see it are going off the feedback of the bootleg, and they are going to go see it."
