Shot in South Africa and starring Leonardo diCaprio, the Hollywood blockbuster “Blood Diamond’ has retained its number one spot at the South African box office for the second week running. It has made R3 924 389 – not bad for two weeks’ work!
The CGI Ben Stiller comedy “Night at the Museum’ is holding onto second spot, having made an impressive R9 908 700 in four weeks. Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-nominated epic “The Departed’ is doing less well, with R6 948 595 in five weeks. It is followed by the illusionist thriller, “Prestige’ and, surprise surprise – “The Queen’ (more of an arthouse release).
“Casino Royale’ filnally looks set to exit the top ten soon but it has made an enormous R22 731 947 in nine weeks.
