Springbok Casino Celebrates Cinema Linked to South Africa



Thursday 1st October 2020

It's no surprise South Africa is such a popular place to film. With its great weather, modern cities and beautiful scenery, South Africa makes an amazing backdrop. This month, Springbok Casino (http://www.springbokcasino.co.za) has published a feature on blockbusters shot in South Africa: Movies and the South African Connection. While you're there, don't forget your 25 free spins on T-Rex 2, until October 31st!

“Our landscapes and cities have posed as all kinds of locations, but South Africans aren’t fooled,” said Springbok Casino manager, Daniel Van Wyke. “We know Capetown when we see it!”

Blood Diamond, starring Leonardo Di Caprio, is a fictional thriller, based on the reality of diamonds being mined in Africa to fund factional wars.

Directed by South African Neill Blomkamp, District 9 is a dystopian science fiction thriller about extraterrestrials who land in Johannesburg. 

Avengers: Age of Ultron, starring Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johannson and Samuel L. Jackson, is one of the biggest budget films ever shot in South Africa. Film crews spent two weeks in Johannesburg shooting action sequences for the $365 million film.


In Homeland: Season 4, Cape Town stands in for Islamabad, Washington and Tel Aviv.

The wasteland desert scenes in Mad Max: Fury Road were mostly filmed in the Namib Desert.

Directed by Clint Eastwood, Invictus tells the story of how the 1995 Rugby World Cup, hosted and won by South Africa, united the country.

Except for Lord Croft’s manor house, all the scenes from Roar Uthaug’s Tomb Raider were filmed in Cape Town.

Nelson Mandela played a small cameo in director Spike Lee’s biopic of Malcolm X.

Video clips from these and other movies shot in South Africa can be viewed at:
