bad company box officeDisney financed Bad Company for $70 million and the film was originally set for release in December 2001, but Disney pushed the pic back until June 7th 2002 after the Sept 11 attacks — along with Big Trouble, which suffered a worse fate at the box office.  Bad Company would mark being the last major production to film inside the World Trade Center.  Bad Company received generally negative reviews and opened in 2,944 theaters to a disappointing $11,007,367 and dropped 46.6% in its second weekend to $5,872,984.  The pic faded quickly after declining 63.8% in its third frame to $2,127,963 and closed its run with $30,160,161.  The overseas numbers were about on par with the poor domestic gross and the the total was $35,817,134.  In a quarter investor report Disney Chairman Michael Eisner noted the huge loss from Bad Company, which offset profits from the animated hit Lilo & Stitch: ”Needless to say, failure like ‘Bad Company’ and, much less, ‘Reign of Fire,’ are the downsides of any quarter.”
