Blood Work was financed by Warner Bros for $50 million and the Clint Eastwood film opened in the same range as his 1999 flop True Crime. The film was booked in 2,525 theaters, courting older auds, while the younger crowd had the Vin Diesel pic XXX open and families had Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams. Blood Work was tracking for a modest $10 million opening and was expected to leg out and play well over the upcoming weeks. It pulled in a soft $7,312,413 — placing #5 for the weekend led by XXX. Blood Work saw a modest 34.3% second weekend decline to $4,807,836 and the third frame dipped 40.9% to $2,840,880. The Eastwood pic closed its US run with an underwhelming $26,235,081. Warner Bros would see back about $14.4 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, leaving part of the P&A costs in the red. Overseas, where most of Eastwood’s film pull in decent box office numbers, Blood Work was mostly dumped by Warner Bros. The film played only in 57 theaters in the UK to all of $266,386 and France posted the highest gross with just $1.3 million. The overseas cume was $5,559,637 which has been Eastwood’s lowest overseas gross ever since.
