It took thirteen weeks but John Wick 3 has officially been kicked off the South African box office top 10 as two new releases landed quite high in the charts this past weekend. Both Art of Racing in the Rain, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark released on Friday and did quite well over the weekend both making half a million Rands during its debut weekend.
The Lion King is still holding onto its top spot on the South African box office and we doubt it will be knocked off anytime soon, not without a major release coming along. Perhaps It: Chapter Two? Speaking of which, we have an awesome hamper for It: Chapter Two to give away so make sure you enter.
|Spot||Movie||Weeks On Chart|
|1||The Lion King||4|
|2||Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw||2|
|3||Spider-Man: Far From Home||6|
|4||Art of Racing in the Rain||NEW|
|5||Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark||NEW|
|6||Secret Life of Pets 2||7|
|7||Toy Story 4||8|
As for the current box office revenues. The Lion King keeps on raking in the cash making another R20 million in the past week alone. As for the new Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw, it is not doing as great as its predecessors only picking up another R10 million since its debut weekend.
The film is still holding onto its second spot right under The Lion King. Annebelle Comes Home has also been booted off the chart after only six weeks making it last half the time of John Wick 3.
|1||The Lion King||86,443,326|
|3||Spider-Man: Far From Home||32,376,459|
|4||Toy Story 4||22,729,128|
|5||Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw||21,823,211|
|6||Secret Life of Pets 2||15,856,812|
|9||Art of Racing in the Rain||528,443|
|10||Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark||489,352|
It will be interesting to see how The Lion King holds up in the coming weeks as other films release in the country.
