Lakeshore Entertainment financed Wicker Park, the english language remake of the french 1996 film L’Appartement, for $30 million and MGM signed on as US distributor in early development and contributed $9 million toward the production costs. Lakeshore handled foreign distribution sales to distributors who mostly dumped the film. MGM opened Wicker Park on the sluggish labor day weekend and not surprisingly the film pulled in a poor $5,467,281 in 2,598 theaters. It placed #6 for the weekend led by the holdover Hero. The flops Paparazzi and Vanity Fair also bowed. The poorly reviewed film also received a C+ cinemascore from moviegoers and Wicker Park saw a 54.1% second weekend decline to $2,508,355 and 59.9% third weekend drop to $1,005,718. The film was pulled from release at the end of its fourth week, grossing just $13,001,257. MGM would see back about $7.1 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would not even cover half of the P&A costs. The overseas total was $8,567,561 across many distributors and Spain posted the highest overseas numbers with only $2.9 million. The film went straight to video in Italy.
