New Bond film now showing in Nigeria cinemas

06 November 2015, 10:01Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The eagerly-anticipated new James Bond film, SPECTRE, will start showing in Nigerian cinemas today on the back of an exclusive premiere hosted by the  British High Commissioner, Paul Arkwright.

The screening was preceded by a glitzy event, with guests taking to a specially created ‘green carpet’, reflecting Nigeria’s national colour.

It celebrated two joint hosts and Official Partners of SPECTRE – Jaguar Land Rover and Heineken – whose corporate colours are both green.

SPECTRE is Bond's 24th cinematic adventure and has been hailed the most expensive 007 film to date, costing £200 million.

Arkright said James Bond was an icon of British style, adventure and culture. "Nigeria is just one of 60 countries worldwide taking part in our global Bond is GREAT campaign," he said.

Connie Price, British Council Country Director, said the screening of SPECTRE was a great success and an excellent example of British arts and culture.

"Seeing the buzz around the film was, for me, a perfect way to kick-off our participation in Africa International Film "Festival (AFRIFF), which starts next week," she said.
