Nollywood is ready to Attackkkkk in September | Cinema Arising


As we approach the "ember" months and all the predictions that typically come it, Nollywood is not left behind as we have some major lineups for this month.
It so appears that for the first time in a very long time, Nollywood will be competing against Nollywood at the cinemas, unlike before when it's usually Nollywood vs. Hollywood.


This is a very much welcomed development for the industry as it proves that Nollywood is rising up to the task of being able to produce cinema worthy movies.

TRIBUNAL | Kunle Afolayan | September 1st

The story follows Jimi Disu, a man in his fifties and one of the bright-minded lawyers who co-established a leading law firm in Lagos many years ago.

He subsequently became a ‘charge and bail’ lawyer with no further ambition.
Approached by a young, enthusiastic, fresh law school graduate Tanimowo (who adores him for the stature of his legendary pedigree as a lawyer), to defend her friend, an albino who has been unfairly relieved of his duties at work, Jimi Disu is presented a chance to battle his old law firm.
