Box Office

Even Russians Aren’t Going to the Movies

Just as we are scaling back on little luxuries like a Saturday matinee, the Russians, too, aren’t going to the movies. This year, Russian box office earnings fell by a third, and admissions by a half. Since their record-shattering movie Irony of Fate 2 opened last year, nothing can compete. Even Boogie Bones or Hipsters, this year’s top flick, can’t save the box office now.
