If you’ve been reading this blog in the past couple of months, you might have noticed my enthusiasm for the film’s release, so you can imagine my disappointment when I found out that the movie will not be coming to Nigeria…at least not yet.
I was really looking forward to seeing the movie, so I started checking Cinema Schedules to see when the movie was on. After going round and finding nothing, I decided to contact these cinemas directly, and the long and short of the reply they gave me was that they were not showing the movie. I asked why, but they said it just wasn’t on their radar for now.
Now, I don’t know, but from the responses I’ve gauged, it seems like quite a lot of people are interested in seeing this movie, so I don’t think it would be a bad idea for one of our cinemas to show this film. With the right marketing, I’m sure it’ll do well.
Dope is a coming of age comedy/drama for the post hip hop generation. It is the story of Malcolm, a geek, carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Inglewood, California filled with gangsters and drugs dealers. However, a chance invitation to a big underground party leads Malcolm and his friends into a gritty adventure filled with offbeat characters and bad choices.
The film stars Shameik Moore, Kiersey Clemons, A$ap Rocky, Zoe Kravitz, Tyga and the likes.
By the way, I’m not sure I can wait more than a week. If it takes longer than that, I’m going to have to do the needful.
If you haven’t seen it, here’s one of the trailers.
