biker boyz2003 was a transitional year for Dreamworks, which released seven features that were modestly budgeted, but only Old School hit it big at the box office.  Biker Boyz was their first release of the year and the $24m film opened in the US in 1,766 theaters with $10,106,992 and sank a huge 58.1% in its second weekend to $4,233,485.  Biker Boyz quickly closed its theatrical run with $22,076,772 and Dreamworks would see back about $12.1m after theaters take their percentage of the gross — which would not cover the P&A costs and leave the budget in the red.  UIP (joint distribution between Universal and Paramount) released Biker Boyz in a few markets overseas, where it was mostly dumped.  The film opened in 139 theaters in the UK and barely made a blip with $107,869 and a $776 per screen average and grossed a total of $220,408.  The overseas total was a small $1,433,829.
