'Koltchak/Admiral' dethrones 'Mama Mia' from international top spot
I don't usually write about box office numbers but given this is news about a film that we have covered quite extensively. It just so happens that this film, Koltchak/Admiral, directed by Andrei Kravchuk, dethroned the current five week international box office champion, Mama Mia; definitely NOT a film that we have covered here [Todd won't admit on the those lonely nights he puts ABBA Gold in the CD player he becomes the Dancing Queen].
Admiral opened in just two markets, Russia and Ukraine, and took in an estimated $12.8 million from about 1,500 screens. Close behind was Eagle Eye, opening in 10 new markets for 41 in total. The math looks pretty good for Admiral, grossing that much with just 2 to Eagle Eyes' 41. But it took Mama Mia out of the top spot! That's reason enough to celebrate. Huzzah!
To recap, Admiral is A Russian-made historical drama about a Revolution-era naval hero with romantic entanglements. It depicts the title character’s war experiences as well as his love affair with a close friend’s wife. All three trailers are loaded up and playing in the Twitch video player after the break!
