This Al Pacino staring turkey was filmed in 2005 and 88 Minutes rotted on the shelf for three years before critics eviscerated it and audiences ignored it. Financed for $30m by Nu Image/Millennium and Emmett/Furla, Sony paid $6m for US distribution rights and a few overseas territories. 88 Minutes opened in the US on 2,168 screens to a poor $6,957,216 and quietly closed its run with $17,213,467. Sony would see back about $9.5 million after theaters take their cut of the gross, which would cover the acquisition cost, but only a fraction of the ad spend. $13.8 million in home video sales (less after resellers take their cut and manufacturing costs) would bring this to a either a small loss or a break even point for Sony. Overseas, the film posted terrible numbers, bringing in $15.3 million across numerous distributors and 88 Minutes went straight to video in most major markets.
