Russia’s Top Movies: December 2015

Published: December 29, 2015

Like most places in the world, Russia’s silver screens are dominated by Hollywood’s global blockbusters. Russia’s film industry has struggled with the financial crisis, but is also capable of producing films that can occasionally compete locally with the American machine. Once a month, SRAS provides a lineup of the top five movies in Russia by box office take—with the official Russian-language trailers from YouTube and, for those Russian films on the list, links to our Russian film site.

Below are films listed with their English and Russian titles (note that they differ sometimes), as well as how much the film has earned over the calendar month.

 

1. Звездные войны: Пробуждение силы—Star Wars: The Force Awakens—$18.3m

 

2. Хороший динозавр—The Good Dinosaur—$5.3m

 

3. В сердце моря—In the Heart of the Sea—$4.9m

 

4. Ужастики—Goosebumps—$2.6m

 

5. Шпионский мост—Bridge of Spies—$2.1m
