stone box officeMimran Schur Pictures and Millennium Films financed the $22 million Stone and this was newly formed Mimran’s first film.  Nu Image handled international sales.  Overture picked up US distribution rights and two months before Stone’s release, Starz sold off Overture to Relativity, which would release their final three pictures — Let Me In, Stone and Jack Goes Boating.  Relativity opened Stone a week after Let Me In flopped and the pic did moderately well in limited release in 6 theaters with a $75,766 opening weekend and a $12,628 per screen average.  The film expanded to 41 theaters in its second weekend to $229,959 with a modest $5,609 per screen average and the film’s widest release saw only 125 theaters to little business and Stone closed with $1,810,078.  The Robert De Niro and Edward Norton staring film did poorly outside of the US, grossing $7.6 million across numerous distributors and was dumped straight to video in major markets UK, Germany and Italy.
