hollywood homicide Revolution Studios financed Hollywood Homicide and the budget was reported as $75 million at release, but after Revolution was shut down and their library for sale, the actual cost was listed as $84.7 million.  Sony distributed the film, as per their output deal with Revolution and opened Hollywood Homicide in 2,840 theaters to a weak $11,112,632 and the film did not have strong enough legs to break out at the box office.  Hollywood Homicide declined 46.6% in its second frame to $5,930,260 and 48.4% in its third frame to $3,061,550 and closed with $30,940,691.  The film was dud overseas, grossing just $20,201,968.  Revolution Studios had a disastrous 2003 and by the end of summer Revolution head Joe Roth told the Wall Street Journal the huge failures of Gigli, Hollywood Homicide and Tears of the Sun was “humiliating.”  More expensive flops continued in 2003 for Revolution with The Missing and Peter Pan.
