Eagles Wings Nollywood First Air Force Movie Hits Cinemas…
Nollywood is no longer the home movie film making industry that it used to be. Production companies are now following the right process of film making which involves good story writing and scripting, good budgeting, proper casting and rehearsal, good directing with attention to details, use of world standard film making equiptments, proper editing, and marketing. All these combined are the reasons why big foreign movie showcasing platforms like Netflix and showmax are beginning to partner with various Nigerian movie production companies to take our home made stories to world audience that are eager to learn more about Africa, our rich culture and life style.


Movie producrions no doubt has improved over the years in Nigeria, but we are not there yet. There is still more to cover if we compare Nollywood ro their counterparts abroad. A movie production company have stepped up to the task and given us a movie that we can proudly say is a movie like no other we have seen in Nollywood. You might already know the movie as it trended on twitter already. Incase you dont know, the movie here in discussion is ‘Eagles Wings’ as mentioned above.


From the pictures i have seen from the trailer and the timeline of the movie producer and director Paul Apel Papel, i can tell this movie took up to a year from its plan to finish. There was no rush cut, and for the first time the actors had to go to the air force base to learn some drills and air force jargons. They had to go to Nigerian Air Force Base to familiarize themselves on how the Air Force operate and how they handle combats which is what their counterparts abroad do that makes their movies topnotch. Its the first movie collaboration between the Nigerian Military and a movie producer. Paul Apel Papel had to go through the exhausting protocol of seeking the approval and assistance of the Nigerian Air Force for this movie. Something many producers would want have skipped and cover with unprofessional improvisation.

The movie which is about the experiences of military officers in the fore front of fighting the insurgency in Nigeria, from Nigerian Air Force officials point of view, was first premiered in Abuja on the 25th of February and later premiered in Lagos on the 7th of March. It stars Enyinna Nwigwe, Femi Jacobs, Yakubu Mohammed, Uzee Usman, Paul Apel Papel, and many other Nollywood stars.
On his expectation of the movie and how well it would be accepted by the Cinema audience, the director and head producer Paul Apel Papel said the following on Instagram before the movie premiere on March 7th in Lagos:
