Despite debuting #3 at the U.S. box office, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has taken first place across the pond in the U.K.
Here’s the scoop from Flickering Myth:
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter debuted in first place at the UK box office, although its opening haul of £1,119,117 is far from spectacular, especially considering it benefited from two days of preview screenings, without which the Timur Bekmambetov action-fantasy would have found itself languishing in fifth.
