The ELFIKE Film Collective – a partnership between EbonyLife Films, FilmOne Distribution, Inkblot Productions and Koga Studios – has confirmed that The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai will have its Lagos premiere on December 10, with cinema release on December 15.
“With the cast of the original film returning for another wedding, the sequel to the Nollywood’s biggest-ever movie promises to be even more colourful and twice as funny, with jaw-dropping scenes from one of the world’s favourite holiday destinations,” the producers said in a statement on Monday.
Among those returning for the second instalment of the box office hit are Richard Mofe-Damijo, Iretiola Doyle, Sola Sobowale, Adesua Etomi and Banky W.
“Fans now have a taste of the awesome movie that’s coming. It has been a labour of love and we look forward to the release in December,” CEO, EbonyLife Films, Mo Abudu, said.
According to Moses Babatope, COO, FilmOne Distribution, “This is going to be the biggest release of 2017, opening on multiple screens in every cinema in Nigeria. We are working hard to ensure that everyone who wants to see the movie will be able to get a ticket.”
