After his success with “Mirror Boy”, writer/producer/director, Obi Emelonye is back with a nail-biting thriller – “Last Flight to Abuja“.

With a long list of stars on board including Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Jim Iyke, Ali Nuhu & Jide Kosoko and an exciting premise, this movie certainly looks promising.

Look out for a new crop of actors including Anthony Monjaro, Uche Odoputa, Uru Eke, Jennifer Oguzie and Olumide Bakare plus PR Executive Celine Loader‘s acting debut as one of the pilots.

The Synopsis
Based on true events…

A set of everyday Nigerian travelers’s board the last Flamingo Airways flight scheduled to fly from Lagos to Abuja on a fateful Friday night in 2006.

The plane cruises at 30,000 feet, tranquil and on schedule.
But like a bolt out of the blue, through a mixture of human error, technical failure and sheer bad luck, the plane rapidly develops major difficulties that sends it teetering on the brink of disaster.

As the pilots fight with the controls of the stricken aeroplane, a series of flashbacks unravel the twists, turns and leaps of fate that put each passenger on the fateful flight.

Young lovers, an elderly couple, a corporate party, a sportsman on the threshold of greatness; all the passengers are caught up in the nightmare scenario and sense the final moments of their lives approach. All…except one!
What does he know?

Nice trailer. For the first time, I feel I was left in suspense. It was unlike some of the other trailers where, by the time I'm done watching, I can already predict the end.

Good job!

Omo T looked great as usual.

The trailer looks good. The best I've seen, not really, but I do want to see it. The font color and choice were really really good and so is the brief clip of the production/directing company.

Olumide Bakare is not a new actor, though. He's as veteran as they come. Good trailer, btw, but saying it is the best out of the Nigerian movie industry yet is over the top. It is quite obvious that this is no idumota/Iweka road standard.

Thank you! They just need to keep the 'high' standard up and keep getting better.

VB, dd you see the overhead moving shot of the camera from one room to another over the wall separating the rooms? You don't see that kind of shot very often in Nigerian productions o. That scene must have been shot in a studio.

Yeah bro, some of the shots in there are simply lovely in that we don't see them much in Nigerian films. Nigerian cinematography is just getting better all the time... when people 'want' to do good stuff!
0.43 the 'Vigin Airline' advert shot was 'sweet'!! You see how good the hand-held shots are? Throws you right in the thick of it. Just checked the Director Of Photography - a 'James Costello'... we'll get Nigerians doing such good work soon!!

Well, most interior airplane scenes are filmed in some sort of studio where you have control and space. Since we don't have that facility in Nigeria, I won't be surprised if they flew the cast to another country to do it. It would be cheaper than to attempt constructing it in Naija.

I thought that as well. Time to build those kind of facilities in Nigeria too, sha. It will be cheaper for productions on the long run.

The shot of the plane flying through the clouds isn't a particularly well done CGI of the plane itself, though. It was clearly not a real plane.

True, the VFX/CGI of the film isn't the 'best' but on a whole the film looks like an 'exciting' move in Nigerian filmmaking. Multiple factors can make an audience quite forgiving... the visuals look 'good enough' and the sound is 'good' too.
More 'experts' will join the trend and it just seems like a 'good' thing to me!
