Coming Soon: "Light in the Dark"
The fabulous Rita Dominic is set to grace the big screen again next year in the upcoming suspenseful drama "Light in the Dark".  
Directed by Ekene Som Mekwunye (who also wrote the story the movie is based on), "Light in the Dark" covers heavy subject matters, such as sexual assault and inter-tribal marriage.  Judging by the trailer, Rita Dominic is set to impress with her performance - no surprise there, considering her track record!

Emeka has been married to his wife, Jumoke for 11 years.  They have a beautiful 10 year old daughter together, but desire another child - a son.  One night Emeke is forced to make a horrendous decision which threatens to destroy their relationship forever.

As well as the legendary Rita Dominic, the cast includes Joke Silva, Ngozi Nwosu, Saidi Balogun and Kalu Ikeagwu, cinematography is by Muhammad Atta and screenplay is by Babatunde Ojo.

"Light in the Dark" will be in select cinemas across Nigeria next January.  What do you think of the dramatic trailer?

Looking For Love? You're in Luck!

One of the creators of the show, Guy Futi, explained that "The idea is to chronicle the challenges of real people looking for love connections...we create a setting to get to know each other quickly".

Kevin Hart to Host Oscars
Everyone's favourite loud-mouthed, short-statured comedian announced on Instagram that he has been chosen to host the 2019 Oscars!  Kevin Hart expressed that he is "blown away simply because this has been a goal on my list for a long time".

It seems to have been a struggle to find a host for the illustrious Award Show this year - probably due to the fact it's luster has been a little tarnished lately.  What with the #MeToo Movement and the lack of diversity in Hollywood, The Oscars was snubbed by many last year in protest.

Hopefully, this year will be one to remember - for the right reasons - and who knows? Maybe we'll see Hart partner up with his buddy and regular co-star Dwayne Johnson to add some extra laughs!  
Congratulations to Kevin Hart, looking forward to seeing you in action!  The 2019 Oscars will be held on February 24.

Trailer Released for New "Watership Down"
If you ever read the book or watched the 1978 movie as a child, you'll know the harrowing tale of "Watership Down".  
The tale of a rabbit colony forced to leave their homes and face untold dangers in the world outside is one that is still many people's all-time favourite.  It doesn't sound like much - a bunch of bunnies moving home - but the characters, the storyline and relationships have captured fans' imaginations for years.

The next version will be a 4 part CG animated mini-series.  The original animation was done by hand, so we'll see if the CG version still retains the soul of the movie.  Among the stars voicing the famous rabbits are James McAvoy, Ben Kingsley, Gemma Arterton, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Capaldi, Gemma Chan and Olivia Colman.

Take a look at the trailer and see what you think!  "Watership Down" will be airing on BBC from December 22.

"Captain Marvel": Mega New Trailer!
For the upcoming "Captain Marvel" movie, we're travelling back to the 90s.  Brie Larson is playing Carol Danvers, a pilot who gets superpowers after being saved from a terrible crash by the Kree (a military alien race just in case didn't already know).  

Caught up in a savage intergalactic war between the Kree and their enemies, the Skrulls, Danvers uses her abilities to fight for good.  Planet Earth is in dire need of her help as it is under threat from the evil Skrulls.  Luckily, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) are there to aid Denvers in her quest.

The first trailer had fans intrigued, this one is sure to get you excited!  Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!  "Captain Marvel" is set to be in cinemas next year, March 9.
