    The Egyptian film industry dates back more than a 100 years. In the region, Egyptian cinema is synonymous with great acting, innovative scripts, and impeccable cinematography; indeed, Egypt is home to some of the region’s biggest cinematic productions. That being said, Egyptian cinema still has a long way to go, and sometimes a film or two shine and make us believe in the power of the Egyptian film industry.

    Today we’re talking about two upcoming Egyptian movies, and we’re pleased to say that they both look incredible. First off we have 122, a thriller starring a whole lot of megastars. From veteran actors such as Tarek Lotfy and Mohamed Lotfy, to younger ones like Ahmed Al-Fishawy, as well as Amina Khalil, Mohamed Mamdouh, and Ahmed Dawood. The movie looks really exciting, and a novel film for Egyptian cinema.

    Another upcoming release is the cinematic adaptation of the popular novel Torab El-Mas, written by Ahmed Mourad. Director Marwan Hamed leads a list of hugely popular and successful actors in this thriller. This list includes Asser Yassin, Menna Shalaby, Ezzat El-Alaily, Maged El-Kedwany, Eyad Nassar, Sherine Reda, and more. We can’t wait to see how this movie pans out, and we know that fans of the novel will love to see it on the big screen.
