True Crime
(1999)

True Crime was financed by Warner Bros for $55 million, plus an expensive P&A spend for the pic, including Super Bowl ads priced at $1.6 million for every 30 second spot.  The Clint Eastwood starrer that he also directed opened the same day as another WB pic, the animated The King And I — though they were not competing for the same audience.  True Crime was booked into 1,852 theaters and also opened against Forces Of Nature and the gory comedy flop Ravenous.  It tanked with $5,276,109 placing #3 for the weekend led by Forces and the WB pic Analyze This in its third weekend. True Crime fell a modest 36.5% the following weekend to $3,352,244 and it bombed out of release with just $16,649,768.  This would mark Clint Eastwood’s lowest grossing picture since 1990’s White Hunter, Black Heart.  True Crime did well in France, where Eastwood is well admired and tanked in almost every other territory, with an overseas cume of $11,947,563.
