on November 06, 2013
Thor: The Dark World took the Russian box office with a $7.8 million premiere. The superhero sequel averaged a market-leading $10,222 from 763 screens. The original film had a $6.1 million bow in April of 2011 and went on to gross $16.4 million from the market.
Gorko! slid down to second place after dethroning Stalingrad for last weekend’s top spot. Gorko! finished its second frame with a successful $5.4 million take, bringing its domestic total to $14.9 million. Stalingrad continued to earn in its home country as well; the WWII epic took in $2.7 million to boost its total to a $47.8 million cume. Stalingrad is the most successful Russian film of all time. Stalingrad opened in China this weekend, conquering the box office with a $6.2 million bow. Stalingrad is playing in three markets worldwide and has grossed $59.1 million globally.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is on the verge of matching the $8.2 million lifetime run of the original. The animated sequel has grossed $7.4 million after two weeks in release.
A trio of U.S. releases opened in the mid-table spots. The Counselor fared best in a competitive weekend, taking a $2.3 million bow that would normally place it higher on the list. Free Birds 3D opened slightly behind with a $2.2 million premiere. Enders Game struggled out of the gate in Russia with a $1.1 million debut.
Gravity slid down to the bottom of the chart after a month in release. The sci-fi film is on the verge of hitting the $20 million mark in Russia, a figure that it should reach in the course of its run. Gravity has currently grossed a total of $19.4 million in Russia.
