Update- The Cinema Movie “Wedding Party 2”, yields N467 million worldwide breaks history…

The Romantic-comedy ‘Wedding Party’ is now the highest-grossing Nollywood movie of all time and biggest-ever Nigerian film the international market.

– The ELFIKE Film Collective, a partnership between EbonyLife Films, FilmOne Distribution, Inkblot Productions and Koga Studios, is excited to announce that The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai (TWP 2) has earned N412 million at the Nigerian box-office and N55 million abroad, making it the biggest Nigerian movie in history, with N467 million worldwide.

It has performed brilliantly with audiences in the UK, East Africa, South Africa and Liberia. Of particular note is its unprecedented five-week run in UK cinemas, beginning with a sold-out, 6-screen premiere in London. This is an astonishing feat for a film launched just 5 weeks ago – it has surpassed the success of its predecessor and Nollywood’s most successful movie, The Wedding Party (N453m), in a shorter time and on a larger scale.

Mo Abudu, CEO, EbonyLife Films, is immensely grateful for how much support the movie has received, at home and abroad. “The success of TWP 2 is further proof that Nigerians are willing to watch quality Nollywood movies in cinemas. We are so thrilled by how much viewers have embraced it. The entire filmmaking process was intense and exhilarating; we couldn’t have asked for a better response to the finished product,” she said.

Moses Babatope, COO of FilmOne Distribution remains amazed at the rapid success of the film. “We definitely hoped for this level of success in and out of Nigeria; however, it has been astounding to see, particularly in light of the international blockbuster movies TWP 2 had to contend with at cinemas – Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Jumanji, Pitch Perfect 3, Ferdinand and Paddington. We look forward to the film opening soon in the USA, Canada, the Caribbean and the Middle East,” he said.
