Senator Entertainment fully financed Trapped for $30 million and Sony took on distribution duties in most markets when the film was in post-production. After a few high profile kidnappings in the US, the subject matter of the film was toxic to Sony and they tried to disguise the kidnapping premise from its marketing and basically buried Trapped. The pic was first dated for release on August 23 but pushed back to September 20 and going into release, there were no actor interviews or promotions and Sony did not even screen the film for critics. Trapped was released in 2,227 theaters and it predictably bombed, placing #10 for the weekend with a terrible $3,210,765 coming in way behind fellow flop openers Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever and The Four Feathers. Trapped fell 53.2% in its second frame to $1,502,880 and was pulled from release after only four weeks with $7,073,251. Sony would see back about $3.8 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, barely putting a dent in the modest P&A costs. The film did not fare much better overseas and pulled in just $6,341,165. After a strong quarter of films, in a Sony financial report they cited the ‘disappointing U.S. box office performance of Stuart Little 2, Stealing Harvard and Trapped’ as eating into their profits.
