RUSSIAN BOX OFFICE: Hugh Jackman Can't Unseat Jackie Chan
on February 10, 2013
Les Miserables made its Russian debut this weekend and grossed an estimated $1.6 million across 470 theaters, the second-biggest opening for a musical in the country since 2008's Mamma Mia. (By coincidence, both films starred Amanda Seyfried.) Still, during this competitive weekend on the Russian charts, Les Miserables' take wasn't enough to place first -- or even second or third. The Hugh Jackman musical is pegged to take 4th place for the weekend with the Jackie Chan adventure Chinese Zodiac holding on to the #1 spot for the second week in a row. Chinese Zodiac made roughly $2 million over the weekend for a total of $7.4 million.
