Well that's a poor start. How much of that drop is due to this film not having IMAX showings?

 

It's doing pretty much as I expected. I predicted 132 mln RUB OW, Kinometro even less (110 mln RUB for Russia only). No one expected to match Awakening numbers (185.8 mln RUB). 

It's like a global trend that unnecessary sequels are doing worse than their predecessors. And this one clearly belongs to this category. 

 

Don't think lack of IMAX screens hurt it.  But 3D release only could prevent some people from going to cinemas.  Sony insisted on it to prevent piracy.

Wait, there are no 2D shows available in any market with this early rollout?

From Deadline:

After beginning offshore rollout last week in Russia, the 5th installment in the Underworld franchise added another 51 markets for a $16.3M frame on 8,700 screens. Per Sony Pictures International Releasing, for the same group of opening markets at current rates, this latest chapter is 10% behind the biggest of the series, Underworld 4 Awakening, and 95% bigger than Underworld 3: Rise Of The Lycans. 
The international cume is $18.9M on the Kate Beckinsale-starrer. She’s been traveling with the film, heading to Berlin, Moscow and Mexico City. 

In 10 Asian markets, the vampire death dealer grossed $5.8M to set a franchise record as the biggest opening in the region. Indonesia bowed at No. 1 with $1.3M from 200 screens. Malaysia was also tops with $915K from 300 screens. The film, directed by Anna Foerster, also ranked No. 1 in Singapore, Vietnam, and Cambodia. 

Latin America’s bucket of markets also set a new record with Brazil leading at $1.4M on 639 screens, followed by Mexico at $1.3M on 1,233. Australia debuted to $1.2M on 330. And, Russia added $785K from 1,338 in the sophomore session for a $3.3M cume. Up in January are Spain and the UK.
