Netflix supports Nigerian Filmmakers

The Ikorodu Bois are a group of brothers and one cousin from Lagos, Nigeria who remake their favorite movie trailers in their free time. Their style is both charming and inimitable – employing a mix of ingenious DIY and childlike whimsy to recreate mega-budget films on a shoestring. They first caught Netflix’s eye when they remade the trailer for Extraction in June 2020. 

The Bois have captivated the world because their passion for entertainment is infectious, and they remind us of that feeling we had when we fell in love with movies as a kid. To help support their filmmaking journey, we sent them a package of professional filmmaking gear last August.

As we approach film’s biggest night, we want to celebrate everyone’s love of movies. This feels like the perfect time, and reason, to give the spotlight to the Bois. They personify a new generation of global film fans, awakened by new ways of enjoying stories and perspectives from all over the world. Great stories can come from anywhere – including from these ultimate fans – and be loved everywhere.
