The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) has released its South African Box Office Report for the period of January to December 2015. Gross Box Office saw an impressive growth of 36% (R1.2 billion for the year), even though there was a price hike on cinema tickets by exhibitors. I’ll give you two guesses for which film is at the top of the list. No, it’s not Leon Schuster’s Shcuks! Pay Back the Money. No, it’s not Star Wars either.

Who knows how Alvin & The Chipmunks, Point Break, and Taken 3 got on this list. What do you think? Do South Africans need better taste in film?
