mindhuntersMindhunters was filmed back in 2002 and was financed by German based Intermedia, Outlaw Productions and Avenue Pictures for $27m and Miramax picked up US rights, which they would release through their Dimension banner.  After numerous release dates, the film was unloaded as one of the many films rotting in the Miramax vault once it was announced the Weinsteins would be leaving the Disney owned Miramax.  Mindhunters was dumped with a soft marketing campaign in 1,040 theaters to $1,911,358 and audiences gave the Renny Harlin film a poor C cinemascore.  Mindhunters declined 47.4% in its second weekend to $1,005,839 and promptly lost most of its theater count and closed its run with $4,480,744.  Overseas, Mindhunters grossed a weak $2,399,571 in Germany, its strongest territory was an ok $5,228,542 from Spain and its total was $16,668,085 across multiple distributors.  Intermedia posted a net loss of $29.4m which it attributed to Alexander, Suspect Zero, If Only and Mindhunters and they wasted more money on producing a television series of Mindhunters, which was passed by every network.
