German based Constantin financed the $40 million Pandorum, with some German grants and tax breaks reducing their exposure to $33 million. Overture Films distributed in the US. Overture, the short lived distribution company owned by cable giant Starz, acquired rights for slightly less than $10 million. Constantin gave the film a big release in Germany and it flopped with an awful $932,423 gross. Overture opened the film in 2,506 theaters to a disappointing $4,424,126 — placing #6 for the weekend led by Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and the sci-fi Bruce Willis dud Surrogates. Pandorum dropped 55.3% in its second weekend to $1,979,061 and closed with a total of $10,330,853. Overture would see about $5.6 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which leaves much of their modest P&A spend in the red. Domestic home video sales were $8.2 million (less after resellers take their cut and manufacturing costs). Constantin limited their risk on the film, which they envisioned as a trilogy, through pre-sales, but poor showings worldwide killed off the would-be series. Pandorum tanked in every overseas territory, grossing $10.3 million across multiple distributors.
