- Marvel’s eternal is set to premiere in Nigerians cinemas today
- The movie was initially banned due to a controversial scene which the producers refused to edit
Ekohotblog reports that Marvel studios highly anticipated movie, Eternal, is set to premier in Nigerian cinemas on 12th of November despite initial ban.
The movie which premiered globally on November 4 was taken out of the schedule of Nigerian cinemas abruptly.
The film raised eyebrows for its controversial kissing scene involving two gay characters hence its temporal suspension ordered by the National Film and Video Censors Board.
While the Censors Board never confirmed or denied the reports, FilmOne Entertainment released a statement promising that the team was working hard to bring ‘Eternals’ back to cinemas following its ‘temporal suspension’.
The distribution company shared another statement on Thursday November 11 confirming that the film would premiere on November 12.
“Promise Delivered. We are happy to announce that from tommorow Eternals will be shown in Cinemas nationwide,” FilmOne shared on Instagtam.
It is unclear if the producers succumbed to pressure and edited the controversial scene as the production giant originally refused to budge on its stance.
Many conservative countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait have also placed a ban on the movie.
