“Like any producer, we have hits and flops. Here in the U.S., for example, ‘Extreme Ops’ was a flop, so, you know, shit happens.”
–Frank Hubner, CEO of Apollo Media
Extreme Ops was budgeted at $40 million and financed through the German film fund Apollo Media, and received some capital from Canadian tax shelters and pre-sales, which MDP Worldwide handled. Paramount signed on as US distributor and did not screen the movie for critics and when the reviews finally posted they were brutal. Extreme Ops opened in 1,800 theaters to a miserable $2,233,525 placing #13 for the weekend and audiences gave the film a toxic D+ cinemascore and it sank 65% in its second frame to $780,654. Extreme Ops was quickly out of theaters with $4,842,259. Overseas, the film pulled in a small $6,117,216 across multiple distributors and despite being made mostly with German money, it grossed just $327,169 there. Extreme ops was straight to video in Italy and a handful of smaller markets.
