The highly pulsating movie is visually stimulating and boasts of uncompromised top notch production values. It was directed by award winning director, Seyi Babatope and stars Nollywood’s finest; Dakore Egbuson, Omoni Oboli, Bikiya Graham Douglas, Diana Yekini, Tina Mba, Tope Tedela, and the Child stars; Kada Mathew , Cassandra Rosman,Sunshine Rosman , Donpet Enebeli, Chrostopher Ochiyanbo, Deborah Oboh, and Louie Obioha.
The movie unveils Banke Adewunmi, a 23-year-old National Youth Corp inductee on placement at a prestigious Junior Secondary School who is tasked with teaching a group of unruly and under achieving kids that the school has given up on. The school is in a financial crisis and the annual Governors Scholastic, Sports and Arts Cup is a must win competition to help secure the much needed financial injection. Banke is on a quest to win the hearts of her students and inspire the whole school to work together which leads these unforgiving kids to becoming Lunch Time Heroes.
The Film Lunch Time Heroes is a classic everyday family friendly story of a quest for triumph against all odds…
According to Mr Moses Babatope the COO of FilmOne “Having produced and released the blockbuster movie ‘When Love Happens’ in 2014 which was directed by Seyi Babatope, we are confident that Lunch Time Heroes will repeat the same feat at the Box office. It’s another feather added to our cap, being the first to tow the family drama path. There’s no family movie in cinemas where the entire family can watch films together without having to put up with the ratings allotted to films which causes a division as to who can and cannot watch the film. Lunch Time Heroes provides families with remarkable bonding time and a rejuvenating and inspiring experience.”
The Director of the film, Seyi Babatope and CEO of PHB Films states “It was exciting working on this film with these talented children and of course the stars. It only goes to show that the Nation has resourceful talents that can be harnessed to achieve great things. There certainly were challenges, being the first of its kind to be produced in Nigeria, but my experience and the acting dexterity of the Cast and sound professionalism of the crew made it a walk in the park. I’m sincerely thrilled about the film and look forward to a fantastic run in cinemas and the inspiration to achieve their dreams which children, teenagers, youths and the young at heart will have after watching Lunch Time Heroes in cinemas.”
Lunch Time Heroes will be released in Cinemas from August 28th 2015.
