Before we say goodbye to 2019 and close the chapter on an eventful and fruitful year in the Egyptian cinema and entertainment scene, we need to acknowledge the biggest Egyptian blockbusters that were released this year!
#1 El-Fil El-Azrak 2
Topping the Egyptian box office is the second part of Ahmed Mourad’s “El-Fil El-Azrak”, directed by Marwan Hamed and starring Karim Abdel Aziz, Nelly Karim, Khaled El-Sawy, Hend Sabri and Eyad Nassar. The movie made 103,518,813 EGP in revenues.
#2 Welad Rizk 2
With 100,200,223 EGP, the sequel of “Welad Rizk” came second and that’s definitely no surprise. Considering that the first movie was a big hit back in 2017.
The film is written by Salah El-Gehiny, directed by Tarek El-Eryan and is starring Ahmed Ezz, Ahmed El-Fishawy, Ahmed Dawood, Karim Kassem, Mohamed Mamdouh and Khaled El-Sawy.

The action-packed motion picture is written by Hesham Galal, directed by Peter Mimi and is starring Ghada Adel, Amr Abdelgelil and Lebleba.
The first Egyptian war movie in decades obviously had to be on the list. Considering that it was a huge deal to the point that it stayed in the movie theatres for so long after its initial release.
Written and directed by Sherif Arafa, the film made 74,495,223 EGP. It’s starring Ahmed Ezz, Ahmed Salah Hosny, Ahmed Falawkas, Mohamed Farrag, Ahmed Rizk and Mohamed El-Sharnouby.
#5 Nady El-Regal El-Sery
