‘At this point does a movie ticket cost in the Russian cinemas for a hollywood movie the same as one for a Russian movie, 252 ruble (3,95 euro, ed.). That is wrong.’ The word is Vladimir Medinsky, the Russian minister of Culture. He proposes that the price for American movies, and with the proceeds the ailing film industry to support it, write to the BBC, The Hollywood Reporter and International Business Times. How much more expensive those tickets then, is not clear.

At the Russian parliament, he told him that the entire budget for the Russian film industry, about half of the budget for The Fast and The Furious. To give you an idea: the first film from the autofranchise was 38 million dollars spent, which at the current exchange rate, approximately 33.9 million euros. Previously complained, member of parliament and director Vladimir Portko that the ministry of Culture 35 million rubles in cinema can invest (540 000 euro), while the budget of an average hollywood movie, according to him, 12 million dollars (10 million euros).

According to Bortko appeared to last more than 150 Russian films in Russian cinemas, but they drew only 18 percent of the public. In 2015 were 25 Belgian films less than 10 percent of the cinemagoing public for winning.
