If anyone wondered whatever happened to Leon Schuster, he’s back and busy cleaning up.
All year local movies have been biting at the local chart’s ankles, but never really hitting the top positions. Then in comes Leon Schuster with a new movie and bam! Number one! Yup, Schuks! Pay Back The Money debuts at the top.
Due to Leon’s arrival, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is down one spot to second. But I doubt it’s crying much about that.
Minions, though, is going nowhere, retaining its third spot, but sadly not returning to the second spot it has grown so accustomed to.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is not proving as resilient, dropping down two to fourth after its number 2 debut last week.
At five is Fantastic Four, slowing down a notch after last week’s two-spot drop – but still down a notch.
Also down one spot is Paper Towns, about a teenage boy’s crush on a very mysterious girl. It’s not doing badly for such a low key movie.
The raunchy comedy Trainwreck also slips a spot, now at seventh and promising at least two more weeks on the charts.
Ant-Man managed to slow its descent somewhat, but the quirky comic book movie is still down one from last week.
At number nine is the other debut in the charts, Mr. Holmes. It stars Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes in his twilight years.
Finally, settling at tenth is the Dustin Hoffman drama, Boychoir. Might it manage to stay around for a week more?
Leaving the chart this week is Pixels and Woman in Gold.
The top earner on the chart remains Minions with R44.5 million.
