Jackie Chan in 'Armor of God'
As the studios puruse an increasingly global business, Universal Pictures International (UPI) Russia has closed a principal agreement with Moscow's Premium Film to release their upcoming slate of eight movies. Studio distributors dominate the Russian box office with Hollywood pictures.

Now UPI Russia will handle physical theatrical distribution of Premium's eight films in Russia and CIS countries (excluding Ukraine), according to Vadim Ivanov, Managing Director of UPI Russia, and Aram Hovhannisyan, Marketing Director of Premium Film.

First up is Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan’s "Chinese Zodiac," the next installment of his "Armor of God" series. Chan wrote, directed and choreographed. Next is Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Last Stand," his first lead role since he returned to acting, followed by "Scary Movie 5." 

Founded five years ago, Premium Film releases more than 20 titles a year, from wide release to art house films, among them "Mr. Nobody" (2010), "Pina" (2011) and "My Week With Marilyn" (2012).
