mr 3000Bernie Mac’s first solo vehicle was the $30m Mr. 3000, financed by Disney’s Touchstone, Dimension and Spyglass Entertainment.  Disney distributed in the US through their Buena Vista label and opened Mr. 3000 in 2,736 theaters to a soft start with $8,679,028 and the film saw an ok 41.3% second weekend decline to $5,094,867 before slipping 50.4% the third weekend to $2,526,420.  Mr. 3000 closed its US run with $21,811,187 which is troubling since the baseball theme would not carry well overseas.  Disney gave the film a token theatrical release in Spain for one week to $28,190 and sent Mr. 3000 straight to video in every country.
