Buffalo Soldiers was financed by FilmFour, Munich based Odeon Film, British based Grosvenor Park (contributed $3.3 million) and MFG for a $15 million budget. Miramax picked up Buffalo Soldiers at the 2001 Toronto Intl. Film Festival and it was the hot title at the festival. Miramax secured the rights on September 10th and was contractually required to release it within a year, but that changed the next day after the September 11th attacks. Miramax delayed the pic five times over nearly two years, as they did not want to market a satire on the military in an agitated post 9/11 climate. Miramax ended up dumping the film in 6 theaters on July 25, 2003 to a weak $30,977. Miramax never expanded the picture beyond 24 theaters and Buffalo Soldiers closed its brief run with only $354,421. Overseas the film had little appeal and grossed a mere $1,946,263 with most of that coming from the UK which pulled in $1.3 million. Buffalo Soldiers went straight to video in most markets in a belated release in 2004 and 2005.
