Let’s get to it.


Bullet Train

Bullet Train is an American action-comedy film. The movie stars Brad Pitt, who acts as an assassin (named Ladybug) seeking to defeat his enemies while riding a bullet train in Japan. Trained killer Ladybug wants to give up the life but is pulled back in by his handler Maria Beetle in order to collect a briefcase on a bullet train heading from Tokyo to Morioka.

Bullet Train is now showing in cinemas.

Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank

Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank is an action comedy animation film. The movie is a loose adaptation of Mel Brook’s 1974 film Blazing Saddles.

The plot follows a hard-on-his-luck hound Hank who finds himself in a town full of cats looking for a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain’s (Ricky Gervais) evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant teacher (Samuel L. Jackson) to train him, our underdog must assume the role of town samurai and team up with the villagers to save the day. The only problem… cats hate dogs.

The ensemble movie features comedy stars Ricky Gervais, Michael Cera, Samuel L. Jackson, Mel Brooks, and Gabriel Iglesias, among others.

Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank is now showing in theatres around the world.

The Most Hated Man on the Internet

The Most Hated Man on the Internet is a limited crime docu-series about a woman’s relentless mission to remove her daughter’s photos from a revenge porn website. Her search for a solution invariably launches an online crusade to shut down the seemingly-unstoppable founder of the site, Hunter Moore.

The Most Hated Man on the Internet is now available on Netflix.

The Terminal List

The Terminal List is an Amazon Original action series. The series follows Navy SEAL Commander James Reece, who turns to vengeance as he investigates the mysterious forces behind the murder of his entire platoon. Free from the military’s command structure, Reece applies the lessons he’s learned from nearly two decades of warfare to hunt down the people responsible.

We aren’t getting paid for promos, but people are saying this is one of the best shows you will ever see.

The Terminal List is now available on Prime Video, which is available in Nigeria for a monthly subscription of N2,300 monthly.
