In a radio interview in 2011, Renny Harlin discussed the film's box office failure. He pointed out that Carolco Pictures was already in ruin before the film even began shooting, but had to make the film since financing from foreign investors was already in place. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the film's distributor, was in the process of being sold and thus could not devote itself into financing a marketing campaign for the film. See more »
In the scene where Morgan and Shaw are running from the town after fighting with Dawg brown, a plastic garbage bag (most likely filled with acetylene for an explosion) can be seen rolling off the porch. See more »
This is not the best movie in the world, but it sure isn't Gigli! When it was coming to theatres, I saw a poster for it (just a Jolly Roger), but never saw any trailers, TV spots, print ads or anything. I'm guessing MGM wanted to wash their hands of it for some reason. I really hope it wasn't based on test audiences or something lame like that. To put it to comparison, recently Dreamworks' Sinbad:L.o.t.7.S. "flopped" but had an adequate marketing campaign. If anyone bothered to ADVERTISE this film, it would have done okay business even if it couldn't come up with all of its budget.
Now getting to the actual movie itself, sure, a lot of it was Mediocre City, but there was enough going for it to keep it in M.C. and out of Razzie Town. I would gladly pay my $1 to see this movie at the 2nd-run theatre, heck I'll take my whole family for $8. Percentage-wise, that $8 would actually make a difference to their Box Office performance.
Now if somebody could just make a Monkey Island movie...
