We’ve come up with something new for the movie lovers out there and this is something that would go LIVE every Saturday/Sunday to help with choice of movies to see when you visit the cinema’s.
Basically new movies get released every week and while some are released in limited screens, like Raid: Redemption and (which i’m dying to see), others get wide releases. The way it works in Nigeria, the three main cinema’s Genesis Deluxe Cinemas, Ozone Cinemas and Silverbird Cinemas all show new movies at about the same time though the timing varies.
For the purpose of this weekly project, the new movies shown each week in the three key cinemas mentioned above will be looked at with supporting details about it to help you in deciding which one to go watch when you end up at the ticket booth. There are two new movies showing in the cinemas this week and that’s the much talked about Phone Swap and the sequel to Clash of The Titans, Wrath of The Titans.
SYNOPSIS: Phone Swap is the new movie from award winning actor/director Kunle Afolayan who gave us movies like the award winning and critically acclaimed ‘The Figurine’’ which stars Nse Ikpe-Etim, Chika Okpala (Zebrudaya), Wale Ojo, Lydia Fosson, Afeeze Oyetoro.
The movie revolves around two people, Akin and Mary who meet for the first time at an airport where they accidentally bump into each other and mistakenly swap their identical phones . This leads to a destination mix up after they receive one another’s text regarding a travel destination. Consequently, Akin ends up traveling to where Mary is supposed to go and vice versa. Neither knows about the swap until they have reached their opposite destinations and “the phone” stops ringing (In Mary’s case) and “Won’t stop ringing” (In Akins’s case) . As a result of the phone swap, they agree to help carry out each other’s missions, armed with the information and data on each other’s phone. But it’s not as easy as they both think as new obstacles and complications rise at every turn as they both struggle to adapt to their alien environment and situation♦
FOR WHOM: For those saw and loved the way Kunle Afolayan worked on The Figurine or you just like a decent Nollywood scripted movie with a drama/romance theme, then you might also want to check this one out.
Wrath Of The Titans
SYNOPSIS: A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Sam Worthington) –the demigod son of Zeus (Liam Neeson)–is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez), switch loyalties and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind♦
FOR WHOM: This is movie which those that loved the 2010 remake might consider checking out. The movie has got action scenes that would interest those that like action genres and the adventure in it is something also worth noting. The movie will also appeal to people like movies with mythological factors used as the theme.
