Earlier this year, Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ made history for becoming the top grossing film ever in South Africa. This past weekend, however, the film continued to break records as it became the first film ever to make over R100 million at the local box office. In it’s ninth weekend, the film made over R101.2 million to date and continues to chart at number two.
This is just the latest record broken by the popular Marvel film. Previously, the film earned the highest Saturday and February opening weekend and, of course, the biggest super hero film of all time. South Africa also joined East and West Africa in claiming the film as the highest grossing film of all time in these regions.
Whilst ‘Black Panther’ is currently in cinemas nationwide, fans need not wait long to see T’Challa in a brand new adventure on the big screen, this time in Marvel Studios’ hotly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War. An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The film releases in cinemas nationwide on 27 April 2018.
Black Panther is now in cinemas now.
