Applause! Applause! Applause! The movie industry had a blast in 2019. Last year ended with all the several big franchises coming to a close, we literally saw the best of the best, it’s like 2019 ought to rewind for us to live it again because a part of us think we may never see a collection of so much good movies again.
And now to a new year, there are a handful of movies on everyone’s lips. In no particular order, we are recommending the following movies for your entertainment this year.
No time to die
This April, we shall see Daniel Craig in his last (and final, if there’s another, he’d rather die) appearance as James Bond in No Time to Die. You know this film is so much of a legacy and just like the Fast and Furious franchise, they are sure to pull all the stops. And intriguing to know is that a female, black bond will be stepping in. Directed by Cary Fukunaga, we shall also see Rami Malek take on the role of a super villain causing “a danger like never seen before.” We highly recommend you see it and we guarantee you’ll love it, if not, feel free to come to our office and we will refund your cinema fee, but not until we refer you to Universal studios in California.
Coming 2 America
This one plays off some major nostalgia but then again, it’s been so long we don’t know how exactly to pick up on this one at first. What is the storyline possibility? All we know is that Prince Akeem finds out he had an American son he never knew about (scandal alert!). We are excited to see how everything (and everyone) appears after all these years and we are certain you will connect right away, but we have to wait until late 2020 as opposed to its initial summer release date.
Obi Emelonye’s biopic of former military head, Ibrahim Badamasi Babaginda was accompanied by strong political controversies that prevented it from premiering and showing in cinemas on its slated November 2019 date. The grand production seem to have gotten a green light and is likely to be released this year. Enyinna Nwigwe plays the titled character and from the trailer of this film, mind-blowing is all we can say.
Gal Gadot returns as Diana Prince and will be smashing lots of stuff (including men) in theis second installment of Wonder woman. The film is set in the 1980s with an interesting storyline we shall learn more about in June. And one other interesting thing is that Chris Pine is in this as well, so expect chemistry and all that love thingy maybe. But trust us, it’s going to be as solid as the film’s metallic ‘W’ logo.
Now, before you judge Nollywood’s attempt at action sci-fi, let’s assure you that we’ve checked and it’s a big improvement from Niyi Akinmolayan’s rather disastrous 2010 Kajola, remember that one with poor CGI’ed robots and flying cars and Desmond Elliot in terrible costuming? Well, director Dimeji seem to have taken notes (now thanks to Niyi), Ratnik promises to be better. Pushed from its late 2019 release date due to financial constraints, we hope to see this film in early 2020. The casting for Ratnik looks brilliant, the post-apocalyptic costuming is commendable. Being Nollywood’s second major attempt at an unlikely genre, we recommend seeing it.
Birds of Prey
This movie has the tendency to fly high, off the wings of Suicide squad and Joker. We get to see a particular story about Harley Quinn in this female charged superhero action flick. The world applauded Margot Robbie when she played Harley in Suicide squad, so we are all excited to see this 108 minutes of fabulous madness, plus expect loads of editorial high fashion!
Bad Boys For Life
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are reuniting in this action blockbuster but as you know the aforementioned, expect good comedy content in the already expected hot car chases. They are the good guys!
So, see you at the cinemas!
