Mr. Peabody & Sherman opened head-to-head against 300: Rise of an Empire, settling for second place with a $4.46 million bow from 2,016 screens.
It's a strong debut despite the second place finish, as the animated film recorded a 60% improvement over The Lego Movie's opening frame. The Lego Movie is currently reporting a $5.6 million running total in Russia.
300: Rise of an Empire was the clear winner at the Russian box office after commanding $9.2 million from 1,441 screens in its opening weekend. The film dominated the market, claiming 45% of the market share.
Endless Love couldn't find a warm embrace from Russian audiences in a mid-sized debut. The film took the #9 spot at the box office after earning $388k at 308 dates.
