The Man of God – The first trailer for Bolanle Austen-Peters’ upcoming Netflix Original film is here. The acclaimed filmmaker and stage director took to Instagram to announce it herself.

Watch the trailer here:
The Man of God follows Samuel Obalolu, the first son of a strict disciplinarian pastor, who finally “liberates himself” from his oppressed upbringing as “the preacher’s son”. After a few failed relationships and heartbreaks, Samuel, ironically, finds himself behind the pulpit with a wife he doesn’t love, a deep resentment born of the abuse of his upbringing, and the skeletons of his past relationships threatening to upstage his success and ruin his life.
A premiere date is set for April 16, 2022, on Netflix.
