Toy Story 4 beats Aladdin — Top 10 movies at the cinema in South Africa

Ster-Kinekor has released its commercial theatre box office charts for the week from 24 to 30 June 2019. After its first full week on circuit, Toy Story 4 has overtaken Aladdin as the top movie for Ster-Kinekor Theatres.

Secret Life of Pets 2 saw a dramatic rise this week from eigth to third place, likely helped along by the school holidays.

Anna, along with new release Annabelle, entered the charts below Men In Black: International and the latest John Wick, pushing out Avengers: Endgame and The Big Trip.

Ster-Kinekor has announced that the re-release of Avengers: Endgame will be screened at a selection of its theatres from next Friday (12 July). When the re-release opened in the US, it caused Avengers: Endgame to re-enter their box office charts. It will be interesting to see if South African audiences have the same appetite for the extra tidbits Marvel added to the re-release.
