Budget: $100m Financed by: Disney
Domestic Gross: $67,303,450 Domestic Distributor: Disney
Overseas Gross: $40,800,000

hidalgo Disney financed Hidalgo for $100m, though there are estimates that the film cost far more and Disney opened Hidalgo after an expensive ad campaign in 3,063 theaters to a soft $18,829,435.  Hidalgo saw modest weekend drops throughout its run and closed with a less than blockbuster $67,303,450.  Hidalgo pulled in mostly poor numbers overseas, which it needed to boost the expensive film out of the red.  Disney saw a terrible $805,218 opening in the UK and it closed with only $1.7m and the film continued to tank almost everywhere and pulled in just $40.8m overseas.  The worldwide total was $108.1m, leaving Disney with about $59.4m after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would barely cover P&A costs and Hidalgo added to the red ink that high priced Disney flops The Alamo and Home On The Range would contribute to just a few weeks later.
