Cheer up, there is much more to look forward to in the world of movies this year. Beyond the names, we will be looking at the story telling and the science behind some of the successful franchises. Who knows, that may be Africa's story in a few years. I wonder if we will see some Nigerian Superhero movies this year? African Superhero movie maybe? Possible. So, back to movies. #clutcheswallet. My new year resolution is to work really hard for art commissions so I can watch all these movies and gist you about it lol; but you, well, you just have to sit tight and watch this space not just for gist. We will be giving free tickets here at the Republic. Stay hooked! Which of the lineups are you dying to see?
