‘Stalingrad’ Takes Chinese Box Office by Storm

Fedor Bondarchuk’s 3D war epic grabs $8.3 mil in four days

LONDON — Fedor Bondarchuk’s 3D war epic “Stalingrad” opened number one in China with $8.3 million over four days from 7,013 screens — the most ever for a non-Chinese and non-American film.

The three-day take for the Sony Pictures release of RMB 39 million beat the openings of “Pearl Harbor” (RMB 36 million) and “War Horse” (RMB 37 million).

In Russia, the pic added another $2.8 million, bringing its cume in its home territory to $47.8 million, and the Ukraine added $132,000, for a cume there of $3.3 million.

The pic earned $11.2 million from 7,960 screens in all three markets this weekend, bringing its total box office worldwide to $59.3 million.

The film was shot on a $30 million budget. It is lead produced by Alexander Rodnyansky, who is one of the producers of “Machete Kills.”

The pic is Russia’s entry for the foreign-language Oscar, but no release date has been set yet for the U.S.
