take_me_home_tonightTake Me Home Tonight was shelved for four years after Universal got cold feet regarding the film’s cocaine use and Relativity Media rescued the long delayed film for $9.5m in acquisition costs.  Relativity put Take Me Home Tonight out in 2,003 theaters to a terrible $3,464,679 opening weekend.  Audiences gave the film a poor C cinemascore and Take Me Home Tonight dropped 63.3% in its second weekend and was promptly pulled off all but 281 screens.  The film closed with just $6,928,068, leaving Relativity with about $3.8m after theaters take their cut, which not only doesn’t cover the acquisition cost, but wouldn’t cover the $10m+ marketing spend.  Universal put the film out in a few overseas territories where it pulled in $648,536 and went direct to video mostly everywhere else.
