According to the site of the “Mira” service, the earnings from the painting by Dmitry Dyachenko have already exceeded 4.5 billion rubles. And he did it in just 19 days. Note that before the release of the film, its creators modestly expected to be able to earn at least 1 billion, and this is with a budget of 850 million. As a result, “Cheburashka” paid off in three days and continued to develop success without slowing down.
Thus, the previous record among Russian films, set by Klim Shipenko’s Kholop, was broken in just over 10 days. After that, “Cheburashka” became the highest-grossing film of all time – “Avatar” by James Cameron. First, it beat it in terms of fees, and then in terms of the number of viewers. The total number of viewers already reaches 14.5 million (Avatar has less than 14). Every day an average of 300-350 thousand people come to him.
So, already in the coming weekend, experts believe that Cheburashka will have a good chance to bring the box office to 5 billion.
