The Man From U.N.C.L.E OS | 55m OS total | 100.3m WW

Recommended Posts

"Warner Bros’ The Man From U.N.C.L.E. opened in 23 markets with an estimated $12M off of 2M admissions on over 5,200 screens. The major plays are Russia, the UK, Spain, Australia and Germany. Russia bowed to $3.1M, for what Warner says is 60% of the Top 5 market share and double Rogue Nation’s 2nd frame with positive reaction to the Cold War-themed pic. While comps are somewhat difficult here — helmer Guy Ritchie’s last movie, Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, was a tentpole sequel – the Russia bow did outperform that movie as well as Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol in local currency terms. UNCLE grossed an estimated 200M rubles, while Game Of Shadows came in at 188M and MIGP was 193M in 2011. The dollar figures will be skewed here given the devaluation of the ruble over the past year.

In the UK, there’s a bit of a quibble since WB is reporting UNCLE’s $2.3M from 505 sites as the No. 1 for Friday-Sunday while Sony has Pixels at No. 1 with $4.2M including previews during the week. Warner did not preview UNCLE, I’m told, and had the highest per-screen average amongst newcomers. The UK is a big Ritchie market, especially based on his early breakout hits Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. The UNCLE TV series was also popular here. Reviews have been somewhat mixed, but the film should have some room to play this week."
