Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows climbed to the top of the Russian box office in its debut with $4.8 million.
However, the movie came in 23 percent behind the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which bowed in late summer 2014.
TMNT 2’s unimpressive showing comes as proof that sequels are not doing too well in Russia these days. Recently, Alice Through the Looking Glass and The Huntsman: Winter’s War similarly did worse than the respective franchises’ previous movies.
Universal’s Warcraft slid to second place. Duncan Jones’ game-based movie took in $3.8 million in its second frame for a cume of $17.3 million.
James Bobin’s Alice Through the Looking Glass fell to No. 3. Disney’s new rendition of Lewis Carroll’s book grossed $1.8 million for a gross of $7.3 million to date.
Money Monster, Jodie Foster’s thriller starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts, debuted at No. 4, taking in $697,000.
Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse slipped to fifth place. Bryan Singer’s fourth entry in the X-Men franchise grossed $432,000 in its third outing for a cume of $10.4 million.
