RUSSIA: 'Lone Ranger' Opens in First as Superman Tumbles

on July 10, 2013

The Gore Verbinski/Johnny Depp partnership had little competition, with second place World War Z dropping 63% in its sophomore frame for a $4.1 million weekend. It was a big enough weekend for Brad Pitt's zombie epic to break the $20 million mark in Russia. The Heat didn't bring in Hangover-like numbers in its debut, but opened to a promising $1.7 million in a market that is increasingly responding to U.S. comedies.

Monsters University and Now You See Me closed the weekend on the verge of the $20 million mark, a milestone they are both expected to hit by next weekend. Man of Steel has had less success in Russia. The Superman reboot fell a whopping 80% in its third week for a $10.4 million total.
