Village Roadshow and Warner Bros co-financed Torque for $40 million and Warner Bros released the film in most territories. Torque was originally scheduled to open in March 2003, but was delayed until January 16, 2004 to give it distance from the similar dud Biker Boyz, which opened January 31, 2003. The poorly reviewed pic was booked in 2,463 theaters and opened within its low expectations with $9,970,557 — placing #4 for the weekend led by Along Came Polly and the animated Teacher’s Pet bowed at #13. Torque fell a steep 54.9% the next weekend to $4,492,005 and followed that with a 66.8% drop to $1,489,491 and left theaters with $21,215,059. Warner Bros would see back about $11.6 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would leave much of their P&A spend in the red. Overseas, Torque pulled in weak numbers, grossing $1.9 million in the UK and Roadshow distributed in their home country Australia to $2.1 million and $2.6 million from Germany was the highest offshore gross. The overseas cume was $25,331,138 and in a quarterly financial report, Roadshow reported a $12 million profit in their film division, attributed to revenue still piling in from the Matrix sequels, but their profit was cut into from losses from Torque.
