The Russians have spoken, and they love John Carter. While box office forecasters are not predicting a stellar opening for John Carter in the United States, the international market could be a different story. According to Entertainment Weekly, Disney has announced that John Carter posted the biggest opening day ever in Russia, taking in $6.5 million. What's more surprising than the fact that John Carter set a record though is just how much lower the Russian box office is than the U.S. box office. By contrast, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 holds the biggest opening day ever record at the U.S. box office with a total of $91 million. In the U.S., John Carter took in $500,000 at midnight showings on Thursday. Many are predicting that it will finish the weekend somewhere between $25 Million and $30 Million at the U.S. box office.  Be sure to check out our five reasons to watch John Carter this weekend,  article, which is written in English, since the Russians evidently already know why they should go see the movie.
