Demonic clown Pennywise does not give up positions. For the second week in a row, he manages to lead not only the American, but also the USA distribution. The horror film It, based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King, has already mastered 809 million rubles, having received an additional 242 million rubles over the weekend. The atmospheric tape appealed not only to critics and spectators, but also to the author of the original source.|
Often very critical of the film adaptations of his works, this time King was pleased.“I had some hopes, but I was not ready for the film to be so good,- said the writer after watching. -For me, it's all about the characters. If you like characters, if you care about them, then most of the scary tricks will work. I'm sure my fans will love the movie. I think some of them will return a second or third time to savor the details. I watched the film twice and the second time I noticed things that I missed the first time. ”
While director Andres Muschetti is planning the second part of the story about the sinister clown and the Losers' Club, his film "It" became the most successful horror movie in the USA box office. It is quite possible to expect that the film's box office will exceed the billion rubles mark. Thus, he will join the other six films that managed to overcome the cherished milestone this year, among them Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2.3 billion rubles), Fast and Furious 8 (1.6 billion rubles. ), “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. Part 2 ”(1.6 billion rubles),“ Despicable Me 3 ”(1.5 billion rubles),“ Boss-sucker ”(1.5 billion rubles) and“ Attraction ”(1.1 billion rubles. ).
The second and third lines of the financial rating are occupied by new rental products. Choosing between the American surreal thriller and the USA comedy, the audience preferred the latter. The domestic crime-adventure tape "Partner" tells the story of an experienced Major Khromov performed by Sergei Garmash, who, as a result of an unsuccessful special operation, moved into the body of a little boy. But even in this situation, the hero manages to continue his work and pursue the crime syndicate, taking the child's father as his partners.
Critics and viewers who watched the film speak of it as a rather formulaic comedy with a banal plot. The kid, whom computer graphics experts endowed with the voice and facial expressions of Garmash and the plasticity of Alexander Petrov, could not conquer them either. And yet the tape, which became the full-length directorial debut of the editor and producer Alexander Andryushchenko, who previously shot one of the short stories of the New Year's comedy "Yolki", was able to earn 74 million rubles for the premiere weekend. Among the USA comedies released this year, this is the fourth result. We managed to show a more successful start to the films “Kitchen. The Last Battle "(162 million rubles)," Grandmother of easy virtue "(130 million rubles) and" Walk, Vasya! " (RUB 81 million).
Third place went to a new film by Darren Aronofsky called "Mom!". The film tells the story of a young couple, whose relationship is put to the test of strength, when the serene existence of the spouses is disturbed by intruders who have entered their house. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem played the leading roles in the film, and they were accompanied by Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Donal Gleason and Kristen Wiig. Aronofsky himself acted as a screenwriter, and if sometimes it takes months, or even years, to work on a script, then "mom!" was born in just five days. The performers of the main roles spent another three months in rehearsals, finalizing the images of their characters. At the request of the director, there were no details about the plot of the film until its release. The avaricious description and trailer promised family drama, horror and tense narrative, on the way out, the audience faced an allegorical parable full of bizarre intricacies of all kinds of problems, from religious to environmental. The result of this is absolutely contradictory reviews from critics and viewers. Someone after viewing was left full of indignation, and someone calls the picture the most daring and ambitious project in the director's career.
In any case, the tape managed to collect 66 million rubles for the premiere weekend. Among all films by Darren Aronofsky, this is the second result. The best start was only for the drama "Noah", based on the familiar biblical storyline. In 2014, a blockbuster starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins and Emma Watson grossed RUB 606 million in the first weekend. But the "Black Swan", which received five nominations for the "Oscar", in 2011 started from the mark of 51 million rubles. and finished rolling with the amount of RUB 133 million.
The detective and mystical thriller Gogol. Start". The film directed by Yegor Baranov with Alexander Petrov as a classic of USA literature has been in the top for the third week. The number of cinemas has almost halved, and the collection of films has dropped by almost 60%. However, over the last weekend, the film managed to receive an additional 35 million rubles from viewers, thereby bringing the total box office to 417 million rubles. This is much higher than the production budget, so the experiment of the TV-3 channel and Alexander Tsekalo's production company "Wednesday", which decided to first release the project in cinemas, and then on television, turned out to be very successful. It is expected that the continuation of the story entitled “Gogol. Viy ”will be released in April next year.
The top five is closed by Steven Soderbergh's crime comedy "Logan's Luck". The second week of rental brought the creators of the adventurous adventures of two brothers played by Channing Tatum and Adam Driver and an experienced burglar-expert in explosions, whose image Daniel Craig tried on himself, 22 million rubles. In total, at the moment, the tape has collected 84 million rubles at the box office.
