Paramount financed this $40m Owen Wilson vehicle, which opened in 3,056 theaters to a disappointing $10,309,986. Drillbit Taylor had modest falls each consecutive weekend and topped out with $32,862,104 at the US box office. Paramount released the film overseas in some territories and also distributed through UIP (joint distribution of Paramount and Universal) to small numbers. Paramount saw a modest return of $4.4m in the UK and $3.8m in Australia and Mexico, which posted most of the $16.8m overseas total. The $49.6m worldwide total would leave Paramount’s percentage of the gross at about $27.2m after theaters take their cut, which leaves part of the P&A costs in the red and the budget at a loss.
