Financed by Warner Bros and Village Roadshow for $58 million, Lucky You would find itself delayed around a year and have numerous release dates, before being dumped as counter programming to Spider-Man 3. Around half a dozen versions of the film were edited and tested to audiences, which continued to preview poorly. Warner Bros opened the film in 2,525 theaters and spent $34 million on P&A and Lucky You was expected to open within the $10 million range and place #2 in the top 10 behind Spider-Man 3. The film was dead on arrival with $2,710,445 placing #6 and at the time of release, it was the worst opening on record for a film playing in over 2,500 theaters. Audiences gave the poorly reviewed Lucky You a terrible C cinemascore and it fell 55.9% in its second weekend to $1,195,342 and promptly lost most of its theater count. It closed its US run with just $5,758,950. Warner Bros distributed the pic in most overseas markets and released it theatrically in just a handful of countries, where it cumed a terrible $2.6 million and sent it straight to video in most territories. Village Roadshow distributed in actor Eric Bana’s home country Australia with an awful $767,258 gross. Recorded domestic home video sales amounted to just $2 million. It is estimated that Lucky You ended as a write-down between $40 million – $50 million and rival studios estimated a loss as high as $80 million.
