Damn....

4,000,000??
Fuck.... :-X

I know...  Just 4,000,000...

I thought it cost $ 30,000,000 to make - or even more. I'm pretty sure Flyboy posted it here somewhere.

Wonder if the $4 mil is just domestic sales, or ALL sales? Someone somewhere is getting a write-off for the investment loss, I presume?! :o :o :o

Bold Films had to let people go because of it.

"Following a handful of box office disappointments, Bold Films will be laying off roughly half of its 14 employees.

The layoffs are the result of underwhelming box office grosses, including the Jake Gyllenhaal film “Stronger.”

Bold Films is also the company which finances Jake's own company, Nine Stories, so no doubt Jake lost serious money on this as well.
