Avengers: Endgame remains the number one movie in South Africa. The Marvel movie has remained in the top spot at the box office since its debut on 26 April 2019, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be stopping until it’s the highest grossing movie of all time.
Aside from being one of the superhero movies on the top 10 and the number one movie in the country, Avengers: Endgame is also the highest grossing movie currently on the cinema circuits. After bringing in over R30 million in its opening weekend in South Africa, Avengers: Endgame has now made R89 485 316 domestically. Globally, it has made over $2 billion, joining only a few other movies that have been able to achieve that milestone.
Here are the other superhero movies and the rest of the top 10 at the South African cinemas.
