Captain Marvel has spent a second weekend at the top of the South African box office charts. And it’s apparently quite lonely up there as newcomers failed to make much of an impact while the Marvel superhero blockbuster experienced only a 36% drop as it held on with a very impressive R7 million. This didn’t leave too much else for the other movies, but in true SA
Wonder Park earned just shy of R2 million, which is actually much more than I thought it would make. Of course, it was the start of the school holidays this past weekend, so we had more young’uns about. What was really surprising though is that What Men Want is still doing as good as it is, dropping only 23% in its 4th week on the charts. It added another R1.5 million as it rounded out the top 3.
Just past the halfway
Another film with a limited opening was Deep End, but the local surfing drama did not have the fortune of its peer. It opened to a meagre R212k from 26 cinemas. Consider this one sunk already.

I might need to go see Captain Marvel again. My mom wants to see it and there does not seem to be anyone else to go with her 🙁
