First, subscribe for Amazon Prime Video

The movie is dropping on the 7th of April, and you don’t want to be caught off-guard when it does. So, sign up for Amazon Prime Video in advance so you don’t miss it when it drops.

Cancel your Friday night plans

If you had plans with friends for Friday turn-up, cancel them. Instead, send them all an invite to come over to your place to watch the movie. If they don’t want to come, show them this teaser and they’ll drop everything else they have planned.

Make sure you have light

The last thing you want is for the power to go out in the middle of an epic fight in the movie. It’ll kill everyone’s vibe. So, make sure you have backup plans laid out in case of surprises. Look for fuel if you need to. Anything to make sure your watch party slaps.

Get some popcorn

It’s a whole movie experience, and it’ll be incomplete if you and your friends don’t have popcorn to go with it. So, make sure you have that ready ahead of time.

Or cook some food

Popcorn probably won’t do for a movie this hot. So, cook actual food for the people you’re having a watch party with.

Follow the conversation on the internet

People are going to be talking about it on the internet. In fact, they’re already doing so on Twitter with the hashtag #GangsOfLagosOnPrime. Make sure to join the conversation and drop your own two cents because, why not?

Don’t share spoilers

There’ll be some annoying people who want to share spoilers by all means. Don’t be like them. Share the teaser instead so that other people can go watch the movie and enjoy it too.

Tune in and enjoy

Once you have everything set for your watch party, set a reminder to make sure you don’t miss it the second it comes out. Then, at the auspicious time of 7pm on the 7th of April, tune in and enjoy the movie with your friends. Tell us, is there a better way to spend the holiday?
