Some larger size movie stills from You and I have been added.
In other news, You and I grossed an additional $197,136 in its second week (an approx. 52% drop from the week earlier) at the Russian box office. This gives the movie an accumulative total of $775,087 over two weeks. The movie dropped from #7 to #11 with the average gross per screen dropping from $827 to $397.
Despite its world premiere launch in Moscow, You and I failed to garner any significant attention at the Russian box office over its opening weekend. The film came in 7th position accumulating an opening gross of $411,263 or an average of just $827 per screen.
This wouldn’t be so bad if the movie was made on a smaller budget, but reports for the production costs of the film vary from $12 million all the way up to $20 million. It seems the film will need to rely on international sales to pick-up some steam and hopefully its second outing in Russia won’t see significant drops.
You and I stars Mischa Barton in the role of Lana Starkova opposite Shantel VanSanten and Anton Yelchin. The film was directed by Roland Joffe with appearances by Russian girl-group t.A.T.u.
As an aside, Russian media is reporting that You and I has found a US distributior and that the film should be launched by mid-Spring. It’s unclear if they are planning a theatrical release or a straight-to-DVD roll out.

The Swedish press has been running articles on Swedish director Daniel Fridell who is due to shoot Apartment 1303 with Mischa early next year. Big thanks to Marie for finding the article. Below is the relevant English translation:
A new horror movie with actress Mischa Barton in the lead role. It is Swedish director Daniel Fridell’s new project, writes Expressen. 3-D horror film “Apartment 1303″ recorded in Los Angeles and Montreal in January and February next year.
It is really unlike anything else I’ve done before and that’s precisely what’s fun. I like the classic 70′s horror, this is more about “Shining”-direction, not as “Saw” and these splatter-horror ice, “says Fridell told the newspaper.
And a belated Merry Christmas to all visitors! I hope you all had a great time.
