Regency fully financed First Daughter for $30 million and went into production a week after another competing film with a similar premise Chasing Liberty began filming. Both films were titled First Daughter and Chasing Liberty producer Alcon relented and changed their title. Both films were box office flops. FOX distributed the film, as per their output deal with Regency and delayed the release to keep it away from Chasing Liberty which secured a January 2004 date. Initially planned as a November release, First Daughter was moved to September 24, where it would go up against The Forgotten and Shaun Of The Dead. The film received terrible reviews and was tracking soft, but FOX expected the opening to be stronger than the $6 million Chasing Liberty started off with. First Daughter was booked into 2,260 theaters and pulled in a poor $4,002,067 — placing #5 for the weekend led by The Forgotten. First Daughter declined 46.1% in its second frame to $2,158,637 and sank 72.1% in its third frame to $603,094. It bombed out of release with only $9,055,921. FOX would see back about $4.9 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which leaves much of their P&A spend in the red and no overages to go back to Regency. FOX released the film in the UK to a terrible $343,566 and Mexico posted the highest overseas gross with just $420,468. First Daughter pulled in a mere $1,536,259 from a few markets and went straight to video in most territories.
