The month of October is not as competitive as September, but there are still Nigerian films debuting, and so far, we have five films slated for release. The thing is, there are always films that will pop out of nowhere and the producers will expect to make some money off no publicity, while we don’t know how that works, here are the films we will be checking out this October.
5. The Lost Café:
Kenneth Gyang’s long teased production will enjoy its first Nigerian screening in October. The film is slated to screen on the 1st of October, and later in the last week of October. It is collaboration between Norway and Nigeria, and features an impressive cast. It was written by Ifesinachi Okoli-Okpagu, and is Produced by Regina Idu. The trailer is one of the best I have seen this year, and I am eager to see this.
Watch the trailer below:
Walter Banger has been making the festival rounds with his latest film “Catch.er.” The film has enjoyed favorable reviews but we are yet to see it. “Catch.er” is slated to be released nationwide, on the 13th of October. Catch.er features Blossom Chukwujekwu, Beverly Naya, Omowumi Dada, O.C Ukeji and a host of other vibrant young stars. We are waiting for this one, eagerly. Watch trailer below:
3. Excess Luggage:
This is a comedy, and even though October looks like it is jam packed with psychological thrillers, e.g. Body Language, and Catch.er, we have Excess Luggage to light up our cinema experience. Excess Luggage features IK Ogbonna, Fred Amata, Queen Nwokoye, Denrele Edun. It was directed by Damijo Efe Young and produced by IK Ogbonna. The release date is 20th October. Watch trailer below:
2. Body Language: Body Language is an Emem Isong production, and it features a number of vibrant Nollywood actors, including the ever blazing Ramsey Nouah, and Tana Adelana. Body Language has a daring trailer. It is directed by Moses Inwang and produced by Emem Isong through her Royal Arts production company. The release date is 20th October.
1. Omoye: Fast rising star, Salami Rotimi is wasting no time in exploring his dreams as a Producer. He is set to star in, and produce “Omoye.” He plays an abusive husband, and the trailer looks quite impressive. We can only hope that he makes a progressive statement on domestic violence with his new film. “Omoye” is set to hit cinemas on the 27th of October.
