Top movies to look out for this year

Happy new year guys!

Its great to have you back on this forum this new year 2018….. Trusting it would be a good and fruitful one for us all

Yes! we are starting the year with a BANG! with a list of a few top movies you all should anticipate this year.

Nollywood is rising, and there is a consistent effort from producers to get you to the cinema to watch content that could help you escape from this trouble. Not every film is worth the attention, but some films remain unforgettable for the attention they pay to details and the excellence of the narration. A film must not be technically sound to be loved, but should have a clear story and should make us feel. The ability to make us feel was something Nollywood did not totally succeed with, in 2017. We hope we have a better time in 2018.

So without further ado here is our list of the most anticipated films, slated for 2018 release:
