on June 26, 2013

MonstersUStill3.jpegSuperman was no match against the monsters at the Russian box office. Monsters University claimed the top spot on the top ten chart with a $7.6 million opening weekend. The performance of the Pixar sequel overshadowed the opening weekend of Man of Steel. The Superman reboot fell short against Monsters University by only grossing $5.8 million in its debut despite playing in nearly three hundred more screens than the animated film.

Now You See Me continued its great run in Russia after breaking the $15 million mark in its second weekend. The magic caper film dropped 66% in its second frame for a $2.7 million gross. The film is on track to overtake more high profile releases like After Earth ($16.5M in three weeks) and The Great Gatsby ($16.7M in six weeks).
