Ster-Kinekor has announced that South Africans can expect a range of star-studded Hollywood blockbusters in its theatres in 2021.
Ster-Kinekor will continue to bring the latest movies to local shores despite being forced into business rescue last year.
The company previously said it was profitable and cash-generative, with a slate of blockbuster films scheduled to hit theatres in 2020.
In March 2020, however, the South African government imposed lockdown measures to combat the global pandemic and forced cinemas to close its doors.
Lockdown restrictions and the slowdown in big movies because of the Covid-19 pandemic hit Ster-Kinekor hard and forced it into business rescue.
After lockdown restrictions were eased, people started to return to cinemas.
Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, which was released on 28 August 2020, also gave local moviegoers a reason to visit the silver screen once again.
With social distancing and sanitising now part of most people’s routines, people feel more comfortable to return to theatres.
Since its reopening nearly 1 million South African customers have visited the cinema.
Good news is that South Africans can expect plenty of top-tier cinematic features.
Here are a few big movies which are due for release in 2021.
