Screw The Hunger Games, I can't wait for the Ghanaian science fiction flick 2016. It's basically Alien, Predator, and Terminator all rolled into one (which incidentally happened once, but sans baby kicking). Are any readers out there familiar with Ghanaian cinema? Because I vow — with the internet as my witness — to henceforth increase io9's 2016 coverage a thousandfold.
But before you click away, know that 2016 isn't the only nascent scifi classic on the scene...
Here's the trailer for 12:00, which will be 2016's main competitor for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
Next, witness Nkrato. I'm not even going to describe this. We're through the looking glass, folks.
It took all of 62 seconds, but I already prefer the Ghanaian Godfather to the Brando one.
Also, there's a Ghanaian Devil May Cry! If anyone knows more about this film studio, please — for the love of everything that is good and holy — shoot me an email.
Hat tip to Sam Biddle.
