and the envelope please...
US box office: US$ 25,255,839
Overseas box office: US$ 47,500.000
Breakdown by country: http://www.boxoffice...id=rush2013.htm
Let's compare with the benchmark movie that everyone here loves: Driven!
Rush: $38 million - Driven: $94 million
US box office:
Rush: $25.2 million - Driven: 32.7 million
Foreign box office:
Rush: $47.5 million - Driven : $22.0 million
Rush: $72.7 million - Driven: $54.7 million
I believe Driven was considered a flop, and justifiably so when you look at its production budget. By comparison Rush was obviously a lot cheaper to make and did much better outside the U.S. Not a hit as such, but respectable numbers. The U.S numbers are probably a bit disappointing and the biggest hurdle for possible future F1-based films, but at least it's making good profit elsewhere.
