The Invisible was fully financed by Spyglass Entertainment for $30 million and was originally set up at DreamWorks for US distribution. Before production, Spyglass found the picture a new home at Disney. Disney released the pic through their Hollywood Pictures label and The Invisible was the last film to use the label. The film was dumped by Disney on the very slow weekend of April 27, which was the week before Spider-Man 3 opened and would claim most of the box office to itself. Other disposable pictures unloaded by distributors on this weekend were: the Nic Cage dud Next, The Condemned and Kickin’ It Old Skool. Disney did not screen The Invisible for critics and booked it into 2,019 theaters and it pulled in $7,717,309 — placing #2 for the weekend led by Disturbia in its third frame. The pic a saw a steep 57.7% second weekend drop to $3,261,374 and it closed its run with $20,578,909. Disney would see back about $11.2 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would be far less than their P&A spend. Disney released the film in a handful of overseas territories where it pulled in a small $6.2 million and the film, which is a remake of a Swedish film of the same name, went straight to video in Sweden. Recorded domestic home video sales were $14.2 million (less after resellers take their cut and manufacturing costs).
