The film, directed by Klim Shipenko, earned 1.8 billion rubles (about 26 million euros) for New Year’s holidays, Sputnik reports.
“The main comedy of the New Year’s holiday ‘The Servant’, which began showing in cinemas on December 26, earned 1.8 billion rubles by January 7. It is the highest-grossing comedy in Russian film history,” the statement said.
