Head In The Clouds was financed for $20 million by UK based Spice Factory, Montreal-based Remstar and the Barcelona based Manga Films picked up Spain rights at the American Film Market and also a minority share in the production costs. The film was pre-sold by the Australian Arclight Films, which sold very well to distributors who ended up dumping the film. Sony Pictures Classics picked up US rights and the pic received poor reviews and had little commercial or arthouse traction. It was booked into 10 theaters and pulled in $46,133 with a not very promising $4,613 per screen average. Head In The Clouds expanded to 20 theaters in its second weekend with diminishing returns at $33,997 and expanded to 47 theaters in its third frame to $57,303. Head In The Clouds never expanded beyond 47 theaters and closed out its run with only $398,278. Overseas, the film pulled in just $3,112,327 across numerous distributors. Manga saw a terrible gross of $216,551 in Spain.
