Spain based Xuxa fully financed this $51 million Milos Forman film, which was their first and last film after Goya’s Ghosts pulled in dreadful numbers worldwide. HanWay Films handled sales for the film at Cannes 2006. Warner Bros distributed the film in Spain which opened in 6th place with a weak $827,715 and closed with only $2,198,929 which was the strongest gross in its worldwide release. Samuel Goldwyn Co. acquired US rights and gave Goya’s Ghosts a small marketing spend and to save on ad costs, they set up screenings at art museums across the country to build word of mouth. Goldwyn planned on a platform release for Goya’s Ghosts and opened the film in 49 theaters with mixed notices from critics and it was dead on arrival with $159,671 with a poor $3,258 per screen average for the weekend. The film never expanded beyond the 49 theaters and closed its run with just $1,000,626. Entertainment distributed in the UK in 139 theaters to a disastrous $98,905 with a $712 per screen average and lasted only two weeks in UK cinemas with a total of just $225,933. The overseas total was $8.4 million across numerous distributors.
