From Friday, October 9, 2020, movie lovers will have the opportunity to see a new flick, Rise of the Saints at cinemas across the country.
The new feature-length film was produced by Grand Redemption Platform and co-produced by Accelerate TV.
The flick was originally scheduled for release on April 17, 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown measures put in place by the federal government, the release was pushed forward.
Rise of the Saints featured veterans in the Nigerian movie industry fondly called Nollywood like Rachel Oniga, Tina Mba, Peter Fatomilola, and Deyemi Okonlawon as well as newcomer, Teleola Kuponiyi, who makes his acting debut playing the lead character in the story.
A statement issued by the producers explained that the film is a fictitious spin on events that took place centuries after the happenings in the account of the legend of Moremi Ajasoro, Princess of the Yoruba people, are reported to have occurred.
It was stated that before the cinema release date, a special viewing with industry stakeholders will take place at the Filmhouse IMAX cinemas, Lekki.
According to the statement, Rise of the Saints is distributed by Silverbird Film Distribution.
