The film opened in America at Mann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood on June 24, 1977. Audiences were so anticipating it that the week of its release, the lines at Mann's went around the block. However, a film called Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) was also released at about the same time. It had initially been released in only a few theaters across the nation), but when it was put into wide release it became a phenomenon and, by the second week of the release of "Sorcerer," the crowds in front of Mann's Chinese Theater had dissipated to almost nothing. One San Francisco movie house, which had broken box-office records when it showed "Star Wars," found that its business dwindled to nothing when "Sorcerer" replaced it for a week. In the end, "Sorcerer" only recouped $9 million of its original $21-million budget, making it a financial disaster. See more »

An underrated film with a typically stellar Roy Scheider performance, an eerie Tangerine Dream soundtrack, and brilliant visuals. This film's reputation suffers from its inexplicable title and unfavorable comparisons to the original. But it's useless to compare since this film is an altogether different beast. Friedkin gives it his usual nihilist/fatalist/existential stamp, making it a much darker film than the French version. Very suspenseful and well-made. Made by Friedkin at the height of his powers. His third best film after Exorcist and French Connection.
