on June 05, 2013

HangOver3-3.jpgThe Hangover Part III led the pack in Russia last weekend, posting $8.6 million debut with no other major new releases to compete against. It is the biggest opening of all time for an R rated comedy in Russia. The opening for the last installment of the Hangover trilogy grossed 529% above its original and 104% ahead of the sequel.

Fast & Furious 6 continued making a mark at the box office, grossing $5.2 million over the weekend despite a 70% drop. The action film has now grossed $28.3 million in Russia after only two weeks. Epic had a big boost in its second week and posted a $4.8 million bump to take its total to $8 million. The Great Gatsby added $1.5 million in its third week to see its cume reach $14.2 million. Gatsby has enjoyed more success than Star Trek Into Darkness; the sci-fi sequel has grossed $10.2 million in the same timeframe and has slowed down significantly with a 76% fall and a $382k weekend.
