Vfx studio C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures created a C.O.R.E. Feature Animation division with The Wild as their first feature to kick start the division, which was budgeted at $80 million. Disney acquired most international rights and opened the film in the US over the Easter holiday, where it tanked with $9,684,809 — placing #4 for the weekend led by Scary Movie 4 and Ice Age: The Meltdown in its third weekend. The Wild had a very modest 14% second weekend decline to $8,332,068 but it fell 42.4% in its third weekend to $4,799,676 and closed its run with a weak $37,384,046. The film posted soft numbers in most markets overseas, bringing in $64.9 million, with $7.9 million from the UK as the highest gross. The worldwide total was $102.3 million, leaving Disney with about $56.2 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would not over the worldwide P&A spend and little to no cash overages going back to C.O.R.E. Digital. The Wild was the first and the last C.O.R.E. Feature Animation film and C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures closed down in 2010. In July 2006, when Disney was pulling in mountains of cash from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook announced that Disney would reduce its movie output from around 18 per year to 8 and slash personnel.
