Netflix drops trailer for ‘Money Heist’ season 4. (Watch)


Netflix, US media-services firm, has released the trailer for the season 4 of ‘Money Heist’ — a crime drama series.

In a post on its social media page, the streaming giant disclosed that the season 4 of the Spanish series — containing eight episodes — will be released on April 3.


“Everything can go to hell in a flash. La Casa de Papel (a.k.a Money Heist) returns April 3,” it wrote on Twitter.

The return of Pedro Alonso, also known in the series as Berlin — who is supposedly dead in the previous season — remains one of the headlining discussions ahead of the official release.

Created by Álex Pina, ‘Money Heist’ was originally intended as a limited series to be told in two parts. The movie had its original run of 15 episodes on Spanish network Antena 3 from May 2, through November 23, 2017.

However, that same year, Netflix acquired the global streaming rights of the series and consequently made some adjustments to the original plan.


The US-based media services firm had reduced the series into 22 shorter episodes before releasing them. The first part was released on December 2017, followed by the second on April 6, 2018.

The release of the second part was however, followed by some adjustments with Netflix increasing budget for 16 new episodes total.

The part four of the series — with eight episodes — was released on July 19, 2019.

Netflix had recently strengthened partnership with Nollywood with the launch of its Nigerian Twitter account.

‘Eyimofe’ selected for 70th international film festival


‘Eyimofe,’ a Nigerian movie meaning (this is my desire), has been selected for world premiere at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival, billed for next month.

The movie, directed by twin brothers Arie and Chuko Esiri, will be shown at the forum section of the event holding in Germany.


‘Eyimofe’ addresses migrants’ endless pursuit for greener pastures in Europe and the reality they often meet at the end. It tells the story of two people’s quest for what they believe will be a better life in Europe.

The movie, presented by GDN Studios, was written by Chuko Esiri and produced by Melissa Adeyemo. It featured several characters including Jude Akuwudike, Tomiwa Edun, Temi Ami-Williams, Cynthia Ebijie and Jacob Alexander.


The movie’s latest feat continues what has been a amazing ride for the project which emerged 2018 ‘Purple List Award’ winner and one of ten projects chosen for last year’s IFP Narrative Lab in New York.

It also further showed Nigeria’s impressive record at the Berlin International Film Festival, considered one of the “Big Three” festivals alongside Cannes and Venice.

In 2018, Esiri and Adamu Halilu were the first Nigerian filmmakers to screen at the festival.

While Esiri’s ‘Besida’ played in the short film section, Halilu’s 1976 feature ‘Shaihu Umar‘, an adaptation of Sir Tafawa Balewa’s 1955, was viewed in the forum.

Just in: Do not take Christians for fools – Reno omokri warns.

…as movie ‘Gay Jesus’ trends on Netflix

Reno Omokri has kicked against on-demand movie platform, Netflix, showing a movie about a ”gay Jesus.”

The movie titled, The First Temptation of Christ was made by a YouTube comedy group and was released by Netflix in Brazil on December 3rd. The movie implied that Jesus was in a sexual relationship with his male friend Orlando.

Reno in a post shared on his IG page this afternoon, appealed to Netflix not to take the tolerance of Christians for granted. He wondered if the platform can venture doing such about the Quaran. He also shaded comedian, Etinosa, who recently used the bible as an ashtray in one of her videos.

Read what he wrote below

The other day, a misguided woman used Scripture as an ashtray. Now, @Netflix announces a film about a gay Jesus. Would they do that to the Quran? Do NOT take advantage of Christian’s tolerance. We choose non-violence. Not that we can’t be violent! If Netflix goes ahead to release their comedy on the gay Jesus, I urge all #RenosNuggeteers around the world to delete their Netflix app and cancel their subscription. If you fail to do this, you can’t claim to love Christ, His Father, or me, their servant.

“It is with profound sorrow to report that Danny Aiello, beloved husband, father, grandfather, actor and musician passed away last night after a brief illness,” the family said, in a statement to the BBC from his literary agent Jennifer De Chiara.

“The family asks for privacy at this time. Service arrangements will be announced at a later date.”

In The Godfather Part II, Aiello had a relatively small part as small-time gangster Tony Rosato but he made the role his own by uttering the famous line, “Michael Corleone says hello!” during a raid on gang rival Frank Pentangel.

Aiello’s big acting break came in the early 1970s in the baseball drama Bang the Drum Slowly, starring Robert De Niro.

His other credits include Fort Apache the Bronx, Once Upon a Time in America, again with Robert de Niro, The Purple Rose of Cairo and Hudson Hawk.

So very sad to hear that Danny Aiello has died. He was a superb actor and a lovely person. It was a joy and an honor to work with him (in Broadway Danny Rose) Condolences and love to his family

Aiello also had a stage career on Broadway, appearing in shows including Gemini, The Floating Light Bulb, Hurlyburly, and The House of Blue Leaves and Wheelbarrown’s Close.

In July 2011, he appeared Off Broadway in the two-act drama The Shoemaker, written by Susan Charlotte and directed by Antony Marsellis.

As well as acting, Aiello had a singing career, he released several big -and style albums including Live from Atlantic City in 2008.

In 1990 he told People magazine: “You know, I’ve only been in this business 17 years.

“For actors, that’s no time at all. Everything is happening so damn fast. It’s like a beautiful dream that never seems to end.”

Baggage clerk and bouncer

Aiello, the fifth of six children, was born on West 68th Street, Manhattan

At the age of 16, he lied about his age to enlist in the US Army. After serving for three years, he returned to New York City and did various jobs in order to support himself and later his family.

With limited education and few skills, Aiello jumped at the chance offered by his wife’s uncle to become a baggage clerk for Greyhound.

Later however he worked as a bouncer in a string of tough after-hours clubs in Queens and Manhattan.

To support his wife and four children, he would take any odd job going.

So for Aiello, the theatre was pretty much a shot in the dark gamble – one which paid off.

Directors began to respond to the Aiello’s raw intensity and when Robert De Niro turned down the role of Sal in Lee’s film, he was recommended to take his place.

The roles continued to come his way. He had bit parts in feature films and won and Emmy in 1980 for the TV show A Family of Strangers.

Later Woody Allen offered him the role in Purple Rose of Cairo, and then he was asked to be in Madonna’s video, followed by stage success as a drug-taking TV actor in Hurlyburly.

High salary

After Do the Right Thing, Aiello worked in the TV movie The Preppie Murder, then took some time out for his family.

In the early 1990s, he was still one of the highest-paid character actors in Hollywood, commanding at least $750,000 a film, he told People magazine.

He went on to do the films Once Around with Holly Hunter and Hawk with Bruce Willis, and he also made a Broadway appearance with Harvey Keitel in Those the River Keeps.

He is survived by his wife, Sandy Cohen, and their three children.
