Hepta: The Last Lecture Hits Arab World Theaters on Thursday
After its release in Egyptian theatres and topping the Egyptian box office with $3 million, Producer Hani Osama revealed the news of releasing Hepta: The Last Lecture in UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman theatres starting Thursday, the 12th of May. The film is also set to be released across other Arab countries, which will be revealed soon.
VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates will host the premiere night for Hepta: The Last Lecture, in the presence of the film's stellar cast and crew, including; Yasmine Raeis, Ahmed Dawood and Dina El Sherbiny alongside Director Hadi El Bagoury and Producer Hani Osama.
Hepta: The Last Lecture became the highest-grossing romantic film in the history of Egyptian cinema, without the currency exchange rates factor. In addition, the film received a wave of wide acclaim among social media platforms, as several filmmakers, public figures and film stars expressed their admiration on their Facebook accounts and pages. Since its release, theatres raised the "full house" sign, which led to the expansion of the film screening to other additional screening halls. As a result, there were nine additional screening venues added to the list of theatres in Cairo and further Egyptian governorates.
Hepta: The Last Lecture's screenplay is based on Mohamed Sadek's best-selling book, which portrays the seven stages of love through four paralleled stories. Mohamed Sadek's novel topped the charts in Egypt and throughout the Arab world for several weeks, and sold 36 editions since its release in 2014.
The film cast list includes: Amr Youssef, Maged El Kedwany, Ahmed Malek, Ahmed Dawood, Dina El Sherbiny, Yasmine Raeis, Jamila Awad, Hany Adel, Ahmed Bedeir, together with Salwa Mohamed Aly, Kinda Alloush, Anoushka, Mohamed Farrag, and Nelly Karim, along with Shereen Reda and the two kids, Abdallah Azmi and Lina Ben Haman.
The film is a joint production between Hani Osama's The Producers, Mohamed Hefzy's Film Clinic and Amgad Sabry's iProductions. The adaptation has been scripted by Wael Hamdy.
