shoot_em_up_ver4New Line financed this $39m film, staring Clive Owen who is no stranger to flops and after a solid prints and advertising spend, the film opened to a poor $5,716,554 in 2,108 theaters.  Shoot ‘Em Up fell 54.5% second weekend to $2,602,115 and closed its US run with $12,807,139.  Entertainment Film Distributors, who releases New Line films in the UK, opened the Clive Owen film to a terrible $752,097 and it lasted only three weeks in theaters with just $1,890,450 which posted the strongest numbers in its overseas release.  The overseas total was $14m across numerous distributors and it went straight to video in Australia.  Domestic home video numbers were modestly successful at $15m (less after resellers take their cut and manufacturing costs), but that would still not cover the $60m+ it cost New Line to produce and market the film.
