Comp# 1.2MGM backed Soul Plane for $16m and a high quality copy of the film found its way onto the streets months before its release. The bootlegs sold extremely well and the film suffered at the box office with an opening of $5,648,486 in 1,566 theaters.  Audiences gave Soul Plane a poor C+ cinemascore and the film dropped 51.2% the following weekend to $2,755,007 and a steep 66.1% in its third frame to $933,068.  Soul Plane closed its run with $14,190,750, leaving MGM with $7.7m after theaters take their percentage of the gross — far below their P&A spend and leaving the budget in the red.  The film saw a brief release overseas to just $631,596.
