A Russian Blockbuster Outpaces Hollywood

A Russian movie is proving an unexpected hit at the box office. “Blood, action and suspense helped “Night Watch” rake in $13 million in the first three weeks after it was released July 8, almost as much as the last “Lord of the Rings” film made in two months in Russia. The previous best-performing Russian film made $3 million.”
