two for the moneyMorgan Creek fully financed Two For The Money for $35m and paid for the P&A costs through Universal’s distribution channel, who received a fee for use of its distribution arm.  Two For The Money opened to weak reviews and grossed a soft $8,703,240 opening weekend in 2,391 theaters and the film declined 46.2% the following weekend to $4,686,110.  The film quietly closed its US run with $22,991,379 leaving Morgan Creek with $12.6m after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which is far short of their P&A spend.  Two For The Money pulled in dismal numbers overseas, with UIP (joint distribution between Universal and Paramount) releasing the picture in the UK to a poor $614,467 and $407,352 from Australia and it’s overseas total was $7,535,130.  The film was sent straight to video in Germany and premiered on television in Sweden.
