Ilya Naishuller's Nobody Weekend grossed $ 6.7 million in US cinemas, more than Disney's Paradise and the Last Dragon and Treads of Chaos starring Mads Mikkelsen. Thus, the film of the Russian director came out on top in terms of box office.

Overall, over the weekend, "Nobody" raised $ 11.7 on a budget of $ 16 million, Variety reported.

Previously, films by Russian directors were not among the leaders in the box office in the United States. Except for Timur Bekmambetov's picture "Especially Dangerous" that in 2008 raised $ 50 million and took second place, competing with "WALL-I".

The film "Nobody" is about an unremarkable middle-aged man, Hutch Mansell, who became the victim of an armed robbery. After that, the life of the protagonist changed dramatically.

The main role in the film in "Nobody" was played by Bob Odinkerk - the star of the TV series "Better Call Saul" and "Fargo". The film also stars Christopher Lloyd, rapper RZA and Russian actor Alexey Serebryakov.

It's worth reminding that that Bekmambetov's thriller "Profile" is being released now. The international distribution of the film was acquired by Universal Pictures.
