Ticket revenue space odyssey actress Yulia Peresild and director Klim Shipenko has already amounted to 1,008,818,982 rubles. (data from the federal UAIS of information on film screenings as of May 4). To overcome the symbolic mark of 1 billion rubles, the film took a little more than two weeks (at the box office “Challenge” started on April 20, plus a couple of traditional days of previews).
The result is definitely impressive. Nevertheless, it is already clear that “Cheburashka” with its deafening box office (6.8 billion rubles at the moment) is the first film in the world that filmed in spaceno longer “overcome”.
In the rental statistics, the result of the first weekend is considered indicative (when the film was just released, and the audience warmed up by advertising went to watch it on the weekend).
So, “Cheburashka” in its first weekend collected 1.4 billion rubles, and “Challenge” – only 426 million rubles.
By the way, one should not think that all the earnings will go to the producers of the film. The entire film industry is fed from ticket revenue, including cinemas (their share can be 50%), the distribution company (about 7%), and only the rest goes to producers.
