Now this looks promising! 37thSTATE has released a teaser trailer for “NKIRU“. 37thSTATE is a new film studio headed by filmmaker, Bolaji Kekere-Ekun. NKIRU is the first in a trilogy of groundbreaking short films the studio plans to release in 2011.

The story of NKIRU centers around a group of friends who go to the beach and disappear under mysterious circumstances. With stellar performances from all of its fresh up-and-coming cast, this supernatural thriller takes a modern look at a familiar myth in Nigerian and African society.

The ‘supernatural’ genre is one that is explored quite often in Nigerian movies, however, it is usually from the same point of view. It is refreshing to see a younger, more modern take on this. Check out the teaser trailer below. The movie is produced by Nkechi Bakare.
The film is slated for release in the first quarter of 2011.

      Chichi Iyiegbuniwe is an actress? never would have thought!

    • na-Trure December 22, 2010 at 3:26 AM

      i wanna see this movie… I miss juju movies.. long time.. i love the picture quality as well


      • THE AMAKA December 22, 2010 at 4:58 AM

        now that i think of it, I MISS JUJU MOVIES TOO!
        Juju movies are way better than those trashy soft-p**n/XXX stuff Nollywood is trying to churn out these days.
        Juju movies, although heavily overdone, were always very interesting & entertaining to watch.
        those were the days….
        (and usually at night, you keep thinking about it and have trouble sleeping…well at least FOR ME! haha)

        and yeah, Tango With Me looks very promising.
        that new Joseph Benjamin guy is sexy too! :)

    • lizzy December 28, 2010 at 1:44 PM

      Lol, i said it then that the juju made sense cos it was something we could relate to but Nigerians insisted on our going western, Now we all want to get back to our roots. Interesting one though, hope the movie does well.

      • THE AMAKA December 28, 2010 at 3:27 PM

        how many Nigerians wanted to go western? NOT ME OOO!
        I loved Nollywood just the way she was.
        i noticed the transition myself, and began shaking my head.
