Nigerian Actress Omotola Ekeinde On Nollywood Talents Having No Interest In Heading To Hollywood...

5 December 2012 7:42 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I was reading This piece on Nollywood superstar actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde (her new reality TV show, The Real Me, premieres tomorrow in Nigeria), and this closing paragraph got my attention, and I thought was worth sharing: Omotola being fully aware of the existing commercial disparity between Nollywood and Hollywood, revealed that Nigerian actors are quite comfortable with the success of Nollywood. “The typical Nollywood actress does not want to go anywhere, we believe in ourselves and we believe in our industry. We have done collaborations with other countries and different artistes from other countries, and that is where we wanted to take it. In truth, I »

And you thought this was strictly an American TV thing... Nigerian superstar, and one of Nollywood's highest paid actresses, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has jumped on the celebrity Reality TV show badwagon with her own upcoming series, titled The Real Me. On what to expect from the series, the actress says that it will reflect her real life, and will address misconceptions about her. “It’s just about me.

Nigerian Director Christian Ashaiku On UK/Nollywood Collabs, "Nigerian Acting," Raising The Bar, More

9 October 2012 12:12 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Worth-listening to conversation with British/Nigerian director Christian Ashaiku, whose pscho-drama/thriller Amina, is scheduled to open next week Wednesday, October 17th, at Empire Cinema in Leicester Square, London. The film fits nicely under that category of diaspora cinema that sees cross-continental collaborations between Africans and people of African descent outside of Africa. The Nigerian/British co-production stars Nollywood megastars Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Van Vicker, as well as black British actors like Wil Johnson. Told in flashback, Amina centers on the life of a gifted young woman (played by Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde) who, devastated by a series of »

This week's new films

29 June 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Dark Horse (15)

(Todd Solondz, 2011, Us) Selma Blair, Jordan Gelber, Christopher Walken, Mia Farrow, Justin Bartha, Zachary Booth. 86 mins

Trust Todd Solondz to give us the flipside of movie man-childhood. There's nothing funny or adorable about 35-year-old Abe (Gelber), who lives with his parents, collects action figures and has no idea of his own uselessness. He meets his match (sort of) in the virtually comatose Blair, and what ensues is a romcom that's neither romantic nor comical, but beneath the misanthropy lurks some kind of compassion.

Killer Joe (18)

(William Friedkin, 2011, Us) Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple. 102 mins

Curdling Texan noir and melodrama in a bizarre, curiously fascinating thriller.

The King Of Devil's Island (12A)

(Marius Holst, 2010, Nor/Fra/Swe/Pol) Stellan Skarsgård, Benjamin Helstad. 116 mins

Prison thriller set on a 1950s Norwegian borstal island.

Storage 24 (15)

(Johannes Roberts, 2012, UK) Noel Clarke, Colin O'Donoghue. 87 mins

Minimal sci-fi thriller set in a London storage unit. »
