New Line financed Shoot ‘Em Up for $39 million and the pic kicked off New Line’s fall slate, which released flops Mr. Woodcock, Rendition and Martian Child after two struggling years at the box office. New Line gave Shoot ‘Em Up a solid P&A spend and positioned it to open against 3:10 To Yuma, where they would be competing for similar auds. The film underperformed with a poor $5,716,554 in 2,108 theaters — placing #4 for the weekend led by the remake 3:10 To Yuma and the remake of Halloween. Shoot ‘Em Up fell 54.5% second weekend to $2,602,115 and quickly closed its US run with $12,807,139 — performing inline with recent over the top New Line action flops Domino and Running Scared. New Line would see back about $7 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would not even cover 1/3 of the P&A expenses. Entertainment Film Distributors, who releases New Line films in the UK, opened the Clive Owen vehicle to a terrible $752,097 and it lasted only three weeks in theaters with just $1,890,450 which posted the strongest gross in its overseas release. The overseas total was $14 million across numerous distributors and it went straight to video in Australia. Domestic home video numbers were more successful than the box office take at $15 million (less after resellers take their cut and manufacturing costs).
