Revolution Studios financed Hollywood Homicide and the budget was reported as $75 million at release, but after Revolution was shut down and their library for sale, the actual cost was listed as $84.7 million. Revolution had a financing slate deal with Sony, which would contribute 42.5% of the budget and 100% of the marketing costs. The film underwent heavy reshoots after poor test screenings and Sony set nationwide sneak previews to spread word of mouth in 766 locations the weekend before its release on Saturday and reported 70% capacity. Hollywood Homicide was booked into 2,840 theaters and was tracking for a high teens opening, but cumed a weak $11,112,632. It placed #5 for the weekend led by Finding Nemo in its third frame. Hollywood Homicide declined 46.6% in its second frame to $5,930,260 and 48.4% in its third frame to $3,061,550 and closed with $30,940,691. The film was dud overseas, grossing just $20,201,968. The worldwide total was $51.1 million, returning about $28.1 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would not even cover P&A expenses or any of the budget. Revolution Studios had a disastrous 2003 and by the end of summer Revolution head Joe Roth told the Wall Street Journal the huge failures of Gigli, Hollywood Homicide and Tears of the Sun was “humiliating.” More expensive flops continued in 2003 for Revolution with The Missing and Peter Pan. Revolution took a $30 million loss on this title.
