Olumo Rock Pictures Ltd has released the official trailer for their latest film titled, Lockdown.
Judging from the trailer, the film promises to be different from the usual Nollywood comedy-drama that we are used to seeing. And it’s certainly cool to see Nollywood directors exerting themselves and diverging to new genres.
Lockwood tells the story of a bank heist. Of a group of people trapped at the Quarterly Bank of Commerce by a criminal gang determined to open the vault before daybreak. There seems to be no route of escape for those held hostage. Would anyone survive?
We can’t wait to find out when the film premiers at the cinema in September.
The Labake Akinyosoye-produced film is directed by Ladi Akinyosoye and stars Beverly Naya, Kalu Ikeagwu, Linda Ejiofor, Kelechi Udegbe, Jude Chukwuka, Bucci Franklin, Harry Dorgu, Jerry Bakpa, Tunbosun Aiyedehin and Tomi Fabamigbe, with special guest appearances by Dele Odule, Sola Onayiga and Tallulah Doherty.
Akinyosoye says of the film: “We wanted to make a film that was different from most films that are being shown now, a film that was an action film, and also at the same time, a family movie, with a strong female protagonist at the centre.”
“Nollywood is always pushing the envelope, so we crafted a good story, got a stellar cast, a solid crew and I believe we’ve made something special. It has its thrills, its suspenseful moments and its laughs and we hope everyone enjoys it.
Lockdown is set to hit cinemas nationwide from the 20th of September 2019.
