The South African Box Office is becoming an increasingly exciting space
Over the past few years, we’ve seen local films generate the same level of interest as international blockbusters and we have to tip our hats to our local filmmakers; some of the content coming out of Mzansi in the last five years has been top class.
In 2018 alone, we were blown away by local dramas, Five Fingers for Marseilles and Inxeba, while RomComs such as Baby Mamas and Catching Feelings had us giggling with our lovers in the cinemas.
2019 looks as if it’s going to be just as exciting a year for local cinema, starting with some of these top class titles:
3 Days To Go
Set in Durban and telling the story of a well-off Indian family who are dealing with not one but two deaths; this local drama is an emotional yet interesting story that sees a mother, Lakshmi (played by Bollywood star Lillete Dubey) taking control of her family and guiding them forwards.
Kagiso Lediga’s latest film, executive produced by Black Coffee, is already in cinemas and has been making a lot of noise across the country.
According to reports, the film has already raked in close to R1 million following a strong opening weekend.
