The Solution Entertainment Group, Palmstar Media Capital and Merced Media Partners financed The November Man and Solution pre-sold this mid-budgeted film that is reported at a bit over $30 million. Relativity picked up US rights for an inexpensive $3 million and opened the film at the end of summer dumping ground over the labor day weekend in 2,776 theaters to a soft $7,911,597. It placed #6 for the weekend led by Guardians of the Galaxy. The November Man saw a second weekend decline of 45.6% to $4,307,680 and a small third frame decline of 35% to $2,800,262 and closed its US run with $25,018,119. Relativity would see returned about $14 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which leaves part of their modest P&A costs in the red. The November Man did poor business throughout the rest of the world bringing in only $7,538,000 and Disney dumped the Pierce Brosnan vehicle in the UK in just 12 theaters to an anemic $7,903 with a $659 per screen average. It lasted only two weeks in release and was pulled off screens with only $14,862. The pic was dumped straight to video in Germany. Domestic home video sales amounted to just $1.4 million.
