Miramax who was shying away from independent cinema to studio sized films, backed the Danny DeVito directed Duplex for $40m, though some estimates are higher. Duplex received poor reviews and was dead on arrival with $4,617,128 and it fell 52% in its second frame to $2,214,920 and vanished quickly after a 71.2% third weekend decline to $637,765. Duplex ended its run with $9,692,135. Overseas, the film played poorly in every market, grossing a miserable $258,973 in the UK and had no numbers reported after its first week. Miramax’s parent company Disney dumped Duplex in Australia, where it made all of $18,318 and France posted the highest number with a poor $1.2m. The overseas total was $9,630,000. DeVito’s back to back directing efforts of Death To Smoochy and Duplex ended his studio directing gigs.
