Nollywood Movie Covers by THEAMAKA3(f): 10:32pm On Dec 06, 2009
why do nollywood movie covers always consist of blown up faces?
ive always wondered why instead of getting real covers for a movie, they just show the faces of the actors and actresses that act in the movie.
i remember walking into a movie store in nigeria and getting a headache from the 100s of movies in there with the same ugly covers of faces look at me. AHHHH!!!
cant they be more creative? something that would attract a person into buying it?
i think this is another problem with nollywood.

what is up with this?

Most of those covers are really repulsive. . . zero creativity. I guess they figured they could attract more ''business'' by slapping the face of every actor on the jacket. Even if they must slap the face  on the covers (very ridiculous concept), they should at least be creative, instead of grating our nerves with pictures of actors making funny faces and mouths so wide open you'd think they're about to swallow a whole fried chicken with no intention of chewing. . . na real wah. 

Sometimes Nigerians can be so adamant and resistant to change, even when it is obvious to the blind man they're forcing a round peg into a square hole.

The last  three images you posted are very good.

Create a nice picture for the cover. What the Bleep is Nkem doing with his mouth like that?

Guilty Pleasure and Girl's Cot were acceptable: Emem Isong is creative.

But Games Men Play is horrible. How many are they? 10 people??
Re: Nollywood Movie Covers by mamagee3(f): 12:20am On Dec 07, 2009
Games Men play is total Bull
That movie is utter garbage

yes thats why i find Emem Isong the best nollywood producer by far.
the rest cant even compete.
she is VERY creative, unlike the rest.
that looks more like 20 people!! lol

And did you notice more famous actors get a bigger space even though they have no business with the movie?

yeah i noticed that.
Alice My First Lady (which happens to be one of my favorite movies) is just like that.
Patience Ozokwor was hardly in the movie, but she was blown up all over the cover. but i guess they did that to sell movies.
the person on the far left was the #1 main star. Chinny Ahaneku (she is really good at what she does, even though she isnt that popular)
hilarious movie.
koolchicco uploaded it.

and Osuofia in London was hilarious!!! lol ive watched that movie so many times.

@Amaka,
The marketers use it as a business strategy.Nigerians love to see what they want to buy. The nos of actors & actresses in the posters improves the nos of sales made.
It has nothing to do with nollywood.
Re: Nollywood Movie Covers by chiogo(f): 2:07am On Dec 07, 2009
LOL YES!! Those movie covers are something else. grin One of my biggest turn-offs of Nollywood movies.

The last 3 covers are very nice. The cover of Ije(?) looks very creative.

idk about that, but it wouldnt make me buy it.
things like Guilty Pleasures, and Ije look good in my eye.
if i see something like "Pains of Love" or "Be My Wife" i wouldnt even think of picking up the movie.
nollywood needs to look at hollywood and bollywood as an example and change it up.
this should be part of the improvement process.
Re: Nollywood Movie Covers by Nobody: 2:59am On Dec 07, 2009
Seriously though, they need to stop with the mess. Its either two faces or no faces at all.
All these jealous actors/actresses

Not all Nigerian movies are badly produced, scripted or directed. Some Nollywood movies make much sense than some of the crap Hollywood churns out. Try and watch Afolayan's- The Figurine. Some Nigerian producers are bringing out good stuff these days. Cheers.
