'Ticket to Vegas' Wins Big in Russia

on January 31, 2013

Ticket to Vegas, the latest comedy by Gor Kirakosian -- the Armenian-born, American-trained director behind the 2006 international festival hit Big Story in a Small City, is the helmer's biggest Russian hit to date, opening strong in 2nd place on the charts with a $3.9 million take in its debut frame. Ticket to Vegas' launch has already bested the total Russian gross of Kirakosian's last film, Lost & Found in Armenia, which managed just $110K when it hit theaters last fall. The ensemble comedy follows four Russian friends who travel to Vegas to cash in on a $5 million lottery ticket, and features cameos from Danny Trejo (Machete) and Robert Nash, a U.S. Robert De Niro impersonator.
