Paramount financed Stop-Loss for $25 million and pushed the film back from its original fall 2007 release date, to distance it from other ‘war on terror’ themed movies such as In The Valley Of Elah and Rendition. Paramount moved the release date to March 28, 2008 and tried to court young adults by slapping a MTV logo on the movie and having director Kimberly Peirce do a promotional tour of college campuses. Despite generally positive reviews, Stop-Loss fell victim to audience rejection of Iraq war themed films. Stop-Loss opened in the US to a poor $4,555,117 in a moderately wide 1,291 theaters. It placed #8 for the weekend led by new opener 21. The pic fell 50.1% in its second frame to $2,271,595 and ended its run with only $10,915,744. Paramount would see back about $6 million after theaters take their cut of the gross, far short of the P&A spend and the budget would be all red ink. The film received a limited release in a few territories overseas to just $291k and went straight to video in most markets. Recorded domestic home video sales were $5.1 million.
