veronica guerin 2003Disney financed this $17m Jerry Bruckheimer production and gave Veronica Guerin a scaled back release in the US through their Buena Vista label.  The film opened in 472 theaters and pulled in $611,276 with a terrible $1,295 per screen average, that would kill off its chances at an expansion.  Veronica Guerin dropped 49.9% the following weekend to $306,313 and promptly lost most of its screen count and fell 70.3% to $91,028 and closed with a mere $1,571,504.  Disney saw the bulk of its overseas gross come from the UK with $4,836,419 and the film barely made a blip on the box office radar in every other market, where it totaled $7,868,156.
