‘Eternals,’ Marvel’s long-awaited film, is now showing in Nigerian theaters! The good news comes a week after the film was pulled from cinemas on November 4, the same day as its worldwide premiere.
Remember that the film was temporarily suspended by the National Film and Video Censors Board due to a contentious kissing sequence between two LGBT characters.
While the Censors Board did not confirm or deny the accusations, FilmOne Entertainment issued a statement stating that the team was working diligently to get ‘Eternals’ back to cinemas after its ‘temporary suspension.’
On Thursday, November 11th, the distribution business released another statement, confirming that the film will be released on November 12th.
“Promise Delivered. We are happy to announce that from tommorow Eternals will be shown in Cinemas nationwide,” FilmOne shared on Instagtam.
Disney initially refused to budge on its stance, so it’s unknown if the production giant caved in and changed the contentious sequence. Marvel’s first inclusive superhero picture with homosexual superheroes, directed by Chloé Zhao, has now been acclaimed as a success.
For the controversial scene, the film was also banned in nations across the Gulf area, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait.
