EXCLUSIVE: Have a look behind the scenes of 'Mr Bones 3: Son of Bones'

South Africans have a lot more to look forward to this coming Easter weekend. The much-anticipated blockbuster film, 'Mr. Bones 3, Son of Bones', will release in cinemas nationwide on Thursday, 14 April 2022.

Mr Bones 3

The film boasts a stellar cast including Leon Schuster, Alfred 'Shorty' Ntombela, Tumi Morake, Sans Moonsamy, Daniel Janks, Sthandile Nkosi, Jay Anstey, and Jerry Mofokeng.  

In the lead up to its release, the poster for the film featuring the beloved comedy pair - Leon Schuster and Alfred 'Shorty' Ntombela, has just been revealed. The placard shows the popular duo in character with hilarious expressions, and one can only imagine what antics to anticipate, as the two set out to defend Kuvukiland from unscrupulous oil-diggers and treasure hunters.

Sixty years ago, in an obscure corner of Africa, the only survivor of a light aircraft crash was a baby boy. Perhaps it was the miracle of his survival that gave him the gift of “sight”, and he became a Sangoma, the seer of the Kuvuki tribe, interpreting the wishes of The Great One through the throwing of the bones. Hence his name – Bones (Schuster). Today, at an advanced age but still fit in mind and body, his mission is to pass on his wisdom to his son, Mathambo (Ntombela), and guide him into manhood, a mission doomed to fail because of both of their obsessive personalities.

The storyline of 'Mr. Bones 3, Son of Bones' begins at the turn of the last century when we witness (flashback) the burying of the Kruger millions by two Boer soldiers, who then kill each other through idiotic greed, leaving the Kruger millions hidden in a graveyard in Kuvukiland. Now, in the present, a scrawny businessman named Alvin (Moonsamy) and his Texan engineer partner named Jack (Janks), together with their beautiful guide, Gabrielle (Anstey), are plotting to mine for oil in the pristine land which would leave it an oily mess. Bones and Mathambo must devise a way to outsmart the opinionated Westerners. Of course, as their plan unfolds, so do many other unexpected twists and turns, with hilarious effects.

'Mr. Bones 3, Son of Bones' was produced in collaboration with Thabede Menzi Films and M-Net Movies, with support from Film Chrome, the National Empowerment Fund, and the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition. The film is locally distributed for SA cinema by Filmfinity Pty (Ltd.) and all other media, Africa wide, through DStv.
