Half of the Yellow Sun (Watch "New" Exciting Trailer)

.
I talked about the upcoming movie "Half of The Yellow Sun" last year, well finally the trailer is finally here, check it out, below. I absolutely love the 1st trailer, Gosh i cant wait. There is nothing more exciting for me than waiting and anticipating on the release of a great movie.

The movie is an adaption of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s best-selling novel. Chiwetel Ejiofor stars in the film alongside Thandie Newton, Genevieve Nnaji and Anika Noni Rose

A scene with Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor

“Olanna (Newton) and Kainene (Rose) are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the “revolutionary professor” Odenigbo (Ejiofor) and his devoted houseboy Ugwu (Boyega) in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises herself when she falls in love with Richard (Mawle) an English writer. Preoccupied by their romantic entanglements, and a betrayal between the sisters, the events of their life loom larger than politics.” 
.
The film will premiere in September at the Toronto Film Festival. Now these are the kind of movies we want to see come out of Africa, move great scripted films and story lines which are fit for international film festival to give us as Africans some diginity across the globe, AND NOT USELESS NONSENSICAL MEDIOCRE FOOLISH MOVIES LIKE YVONNE NELSONS / PASCAL AMANFO directed movie  "HOUSE OF GOLD". 
.
I am so excited to see this movie "Half of the Yellow Sun" with award winning actors (tresses) such as Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose, Genny and Chiwetal. Actors (tresses) you know you when you watch you wont get disappointed. 
.
I cant wait to watch it and review it. I have not reviewed  a movie in a long while, and my reason remains (and always will be) i refuse to waste my precious time to review nonsense movies that is not worth my time such as HOUSE OF GOLD (Yvonne Nelson just continue to stay pretty on red carpet but please save us all the headache of producing a movie or worse yet, acting in one, cos i will watch it on MUTE like i do Van Vicker :) - just to stare at the only thing worth staring - your pretty face :)  ). 
.

Thank You Chimamanda, We love the stories you tell and cant wait to support 100%. If you have never read any of ChiChi's books, ohhh you are so missing out. 



. She is one of the best african writers ever. And you should listen to her in an interview, so intelligent and bright woman. She is such an inspiration. 
.
Please support this movie when it comes out, and try to read the book too, i promise you will love it.
