RUSSIA: 'After Earth' Opens Big with $8.5M
on June 10, 2013
After Earth scored a big opening weekend in Russia, posting a big lead above every other film in the market for the top spot. An $8.5 million gross represented After Earth's biggest performance from a single territory overseas. It was nearly three times as much as the second place film grossed; a $3.6 million sophomore effort from The Hangover Part III that helped the comedy reach a $15.1 million cume in Russia. Epic also posted solid numbers in its second weekend, grossing $2.1 million and reaching an $11.7 million total. The Great Gatsby is now the most successful Baz Luhrman film of all time in Russia, relying on Leonardio Di Caprio's star power to take its total to $15.9 million. None of these films have been able to get near the runaway success of Fast & Furious 6, as the latest entry in the car caper franchise boasts a strong $32.8 million cume in the market.
