life or something like it box office New Regency financed this Angelina Jolie vehicle for $40 million and distributed in the US through Fox’s distribution arm, which received a fee for use of its resources.  Regency opened Life Or Something Like It in 2,606 theaters and it was dead on arrival with $6,219,234 and terrible reviews certainly did not help.  The pic declined 48.8% in its second frame to $3,182,255 and ended its US run with $14,448,589 — leaving Regency with about $7.9 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would not even cover half of the P&A spend, plus the fee for use of Fox’s distribution channel.  Life Or Something Like It received a brief theatrical release overseas, grossing just $2,424,082 in a few markets.
