12 roundsWWE financed this $24m film and Fox Atomic distributed in the US and FOX released overseas.  12 Rounds was the first WWE film since 2007 when the company temporarily suspended their theatrical releases to revaluate their approach to choosing projects after The Condemned flopped and WWE decided to abandon their R rated films and focus on PG-13 fare.  12 Rounds opened in the US in 2,331 theaters to a poor $5,329,240 and declined 57.6% in its second frame to $2,260,906 and quickly closed with just $12,234,694.  Overseas the film pulled in awful numbers everywhere and Fox did not even report the numbers in almost 20 territories.  The reported overseas total was an anemic $5m.  After the terrible numbers of 12 Rounds, WWE would leave their distribution deal at Fox and move to Samuel Goldwyn Films where they would reduce the budgets of their future projects, but have control over the marketing.
