RIddick came well below both predictions and early projections. Around 670k admissions. First of all the movie was very frontloaded with Friday barely ahead of Thursday. Saturday increase was also one of the lowest in the top 10. Also actual theaters count was much less than reported Friday morning on Rentrak. Only 712 theaters vs 920.
Will make probably only 10-11 mln total. Still I guess it will be enough to beat other foreign markets.
Despicable Me 2 jumped from 3rd to 2nd with slight 44% drop. I knew those early Friday and Saturday increases were too good to be true. On Sunday it beat Fast and Furious 6 and become the highest Universal release ever. On Sunday DM2 passed 5 million admissions.
Currently Despicable Me 2 is №17 all-time with 1086 mln RUB. Next week it will pass Madagascar 2 total (1101.1 mln RUB) but Men in Black 3 (1151 mln RUB) is probably out of reach.
Another amazing week for Millers. On Monday it will pass both Hangover 3 and Ted to become the best Hollywood comedy ever in Russia. No one could have predicted this.
After disastrous opening Kick-Ass 2 dropped by 67-68%. Only 333k 2nd weekend gross. Probably will not pass 2mln total.
Surprisingly canadian horror Haunter did reasonably well with 250-255k opening weekend gross. Most of us thought it will do a lot worse. Animated movie Echo Planet bombed as expected with very low per theater average. Still huge screen count allowed it to gross around 270-280k.
