The Brothers Solomon was financed for an inexpensive $10 million by Revolution studios, which was shuttered at the end of 2007 and distributed by Sony’s Screen Gems. Sony had no hopes for the theatrical prospects of the poorly received comedy and expected any business the pic might drum up would be in ancillary markets and they dumped The Brothers Solomon in 700 theaters. It opened against 3:10 To Yuma and the action/comedy flop Shoot ‘Em Up and it was stillborn with $508,601 — placing far outside the top 10 at #24. The film sank 80.3% in its second weekend to $100,230 which was the 6th largest 2nd weekend decline on record at the time of release and was pulled out of theaters after three weeks with just $900,926. Sony gave the film a limited run overseas in the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy and Belgium to only $134,130 and The Brothers Solomon went straight to video in every other market.
