SAHARA (article first published : 2005-07-4)

Sahara, the action adventure movie starring Matthew McConaughey, Steve Zahn and Penelope Cruz was released in South Africa recently by Videovision Entertainment at 60 cinemas across the country. The film was released in the United States by Paramount in April this year and earned more Four Hundred Million Rand at the US box office.

Based on the best-selling novel by Clive Cussler, Sahara tracks master explorer Dirk Pitt (Matthew McConaughey) as he takes on the adventure of his life when he embarks on a treasure hunt through some of the most dangerous regions of West Africa.

Searching for what the locals call "The Ship of Death," a long lost Civil War battleship which protects a secret cargo, Pitt and his wisecracking sidekick (Steve Zahn) use their wits and clever heroics to help Doctor Eva Royas (Penélope Cruz) when they realize the ship may be linked to mysterious deaths in the same area.

Sanjeev Singh, Head Of Distribution and Acquisition of Videovision Entertainment commented, “Sahara is an action packed movie that South African audiences will love. We are confident that it will perform exceptionally well at the South African box office.”

Videovision Entertainment is one of South Africa leading production and distribution companies and is known for producing and distributing quality films. The company had nine films playing at the recent Durban International Film Festival.
