Did You Know?
Website Box Office Flops, which is "A Database Of Films That Failed At The Box Office", says of this movie: "RCR Media financed Phantom
(2013) for $18 million and K5 Intl. sold foreign territories, which wasn't more than a handful of them. The submarine thriller staring Ed Harris
and David Duchovny
grossed just over $100k outside of the US. RCR originally tapped Sony to distribute the pic's domestic release, but RCR Media ended up self distributing Phantom
(2013) in the US and went big with a 1,118 screen release - which opened to a disastrous $508,000, posting one of the worst per screen averages of all time at $454 for the weekend - placing far outside the top 10 at #23. Phantom
(2013)'s theater count was reduced to 407 in its second weekend and posted an 88% decline in its second weekend with a $61,050 weekend and ended its run after just three weeks with $1,034,589. Self distributing would see RCR receive a small percentage of the gross from theater chains (Regal Cinema pays out only 34% to independent labels) and they would see back about $400k, which would barely put a dent in the modest marketing spend. Phantom
(2013) went straight to video in most major markets, including the UK, Germany, Italy and Australia." See more
In the Soviet Union, especially in the military, people didn't refer to one another as "sirs" or "gentlemen" but "comrades". See more
My crew has just returned from 76 days at sea. The Americans are massing naval assets in the Pacific. There must be a dozen boats better rested.
Squadron Command is insisting on the most experienced captain and crew available.
I'm being retired, remember? You should know that. Your signature is all over the transfer. Even if I wasn't, my boat will be in dry dock for months.
You won't be sailing your boat. You'll be sailing the B-67.
