Three Russian film networks removed “Fast Furious 9” from the schedule after two weeks of rental — the cause was a conflict with Universal Pictures International. Problems began last May, when & laquo; KARO”, “Kinomax” and the combined network “Cinema Park” and “Formula Kino” could not agree on rental terms with Universal. Update: “Kinomax” left the film on the schedule despite the statements.
And in “KARO” sessions were shortened, but not to the end. After two weeks, the distributor‘s share of box office fees decreases from 50% to 40 -45%, however Universal planned to pick up half of the revenue from the third weekend as well.
These changes began to occur after UPI became the cinema partner of Warner Bros. in Russia and took over the rental of their films in the local territory.
But the networks opposed a similar decision with revenue and removed “Fast Furious 9″ from the rental. Earlier, the same happened with “Godzilla vs.
Kong” and Mortal Kombat. Then it was assumed that such a fate would befall a new part of Dominic Torretto’s history – so happened.
How the situation will be solved further is unclear. Over the past time, “Fast and Furious 9” has managed to collect almost a billion rubles in Russia, so the studio is unlikely to be happy with such a decision.
At the same time, recently it became known that the fees of the film in China fell significantly amid the scandal with John Sino.
