american_dreamz_ver2Financed for $19 million by Universal, who distributed in the US and released American Dreamz overseas through UIP (joint distribution between Universal and Paramount).  American Dreamz opened in the US in 1,500 theaters to a terrible $3,667,420 placing #9 for the weekend and audiences gave the film a toxic C- cinemascore.  American Dreamz fell 56.4% to $1,597,475 in its second weekend and closed its run after four weeks with just $7,191,830.  Universal would see back about $3.9 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, leaving most of the budget and the modest, but still expensive prints and advertising spend as a loss.  The film pulled in a poor $9.2 million overseas, with a soft $4,134,874 from the UK as the strongest market.
