Movie fans on social media have continued to express excitement over the intriguing trailer for the remake of 1992 Nollywood classic, ‘Living in Bondage’.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the epic film was pivotal to birthing modern-day Nollywood. The two-part drama was directed by Chris Rapu and produced by Kenneth Nnebue and Okechukwu Ogunjiofor.

@Collinsobinno said, “It’s not only Kanayo o, the full Nollywood ritualist squad is there. I love the trailer. See the look on Ramsey Noah’s face during his rejectee initiation.”

@Digispex said, “I hate unnecessary sequels but I’m actually hyped to see this. One of the first Nigerian movies I ever saw.”

@Easternvibe tweeted, “I like the occult setting, it’s more sophisticated than what we’re used to in Nollywood.”
