When I asked my friends if they’d watched FIFTY after the first week of its premiere, their answer was always no, but for the best reason ever… the tickets were always sold out when they got to the cinema (they’ve been able to watch it now though after ordering their tickets online, that’s a free tip for you.
Even up against seemingly popular films such as but not limited to Star Wars, Point Break and No Escape, FIFTY is the film breaking all records at the Nigerian box office. In the last two weeks, FIFTY has been consistently selling out shows in Ikeja, Abuja, Surulere, Lekki, Ibadan, Akure and other locations across the country. One of the strongest points for FIFTY is the film’s ability to attract a new type of audience, particularly middle-class women who have gone out in groups to catch the action.
Here is what people are saying about their experience after watching FIFTY:
“FIFTY has brought the pride back in me, the pride of being a Nigerian! And that’s saying it the way it is!” – Tunde Fagbenle, Punch Newspaper
“Nigerians can look forward to a big treat when FIFTY hits the cinemas nationwide from December 18, 2015. Kudos to my sister Mo Abudu and the entire cast and crew of FIFTY.”-Tunde Kelani, Film Maker
“I found the film entertaining and feel that it will be an unquestionable box office hit amongst its audience.” – Nadia Denton, Film Industry Specialist, Publicist and Author of The Nigerian Filmmaker’s Guide to Success
“It was an amazing film – the music, costumes, story, the elegance with which the plot was delivered. I loved it.” – Ojoma Ochai, Director, British Council
