RUSSIA: 'Fast 6' Opens Strong with $17.7M, 'Star Trek' Slides into Darkness

on May 29, 2013

fast-furious-6_05.jpgFast & Furious 6 sped through the Russian box office last weekend, grossing a massive $17.7 million in its opening weekend. The film premiered in 900 screens, less than The Great Gatsby or Star Trek Into Darkness, and easily finished the weekend leading the per-screen average race with $19,746. The Great Gatsby placed second with the smallest drop from all of the weekend's hold-overs, falling 41% for a $3.3 million weekend and $11.3 million Russian cume. Russia is Gatsby's second-most important market, behind the United Kingdom. Epic premiered in third place with $1.9 million. Star Trek Into Darkness suffered a steep 73% drop in its second week, grossing $1.6 million over the weekend. It's an alarming slide for the sci-fi sequel, which has grossed a $9.2 million cume in Russia and looks to have run out of steam as public interest has waned early on. Iron Man 3 had its first weekend under the $1 million mark, dropping 72% and reaching a $43.6 million cume. The $50 million mark looks to be out of reach for Iron Man 3 in Russia.
