Sony financed this $25 million remake through their Screen Gems label, which completed filming in 2009 and was delayed until its Sept 16, 2011 release date. Sony opened Straw Dogs in the US in 2,408 theaters to a poor $5,123,760 and the acclaimed film Drive likely cannibalized the opening weekend audience for Straw Dogs, which wasn’t helped by mixed to poor reviews and horrible word of mouth with a C cinemascore. The pic placed #5 for the weekend led by the re-release of The Lion King, Contagion and Drive. It dropped 60% in its second weekend to $2,051,333 and finished its domestic run after only 4 weeks with only $10,324,441. Sony would see about $5.6 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, leaving most of the modest ad spend in the red and the budget at a loss. Sony distributed overseas and opened the film theatrically in just a few countries to a dismal $929,380 and it went straight to video in most major markets. Straw Dogs played surprisingly well in the home video market in the US making $19.2 million in sales (less after resellers take their cut and manufacturing costs) which would still leave Sony with a loss, but not a sizable one.
