Summer is here, and there are a number of must-watch movies about to hit cinemas. That’s why this week, Weekend Magazine has taken the liberty of sharing six movies that you can’t afford to miss this season
The Reunion (16th August 2019)
Four friends from high school reunite to plan the 50th anniversary of their alma mater. As the battle of superiority stirs up and issues from the past are revisited, secrets are revealed that threaten to tear up their seemingly perfect lives.
The Bling Lagosians
‘The Bling Lagosians’ which hit cinemas just yesterday, follows the Holloways, one of Lagos’s most prestigious families, as they prepare to celebrate the 51st birthday of the family’s matriarch while at the same time, trying to prevent the closure of the family business. Directed by Bolanle Austen-Peters, the movie stars Jide Kosoko, Bisola Aiyola, Toyin Abraham, Elvina Ibru and Helen Paul.
The Lion King
A remake of the 1994 Disney movie of the same name will see a revamp, turning the original traditionally animated movie to photorealistic computer animation. The decision to remake ‘The Lion King’ was as a result of the huge success of ‘The Jungle Book.’ The ensemble cast includes Donald Glover, Seth Rogan, Beyoncé, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and James Earl Jones, who will be reprising his role as Mufasa. The release date is July 19th.
