what's your number 2011
New Line optioned the theatrical rights to Karyn Bosnak’s novel 20 Times a Lady in February 2006 but the project never materialized at the mini-major.  It was then brought over to Sony, but once again was put into turnaround.  The project then landed a green light at New Regency, which financed.  The budget for What’s Your Number? was $20 million and Fox distributed worldwide.

Following a successful year with female led R rated comedies like Bridesmaids, No Strings Attached and Bad Teacher, this Anna Faris vehicle was dated for September 30, 2011.  What’s Your Number? bowed against Courageous, 50/50 and Dream House.  Reviews were terrible and the picture was tracking for a soft $8 million opening.

What’s Your Number? tanked with $5,421,669 in 3,002 theaters, posting the 4th worst opening at the time for a release in over 3,000 theaters.  It placed #8 for the weekend, led by the holdover Dolphin Tale.  What’s Your Number? followed its lousy opening with a 42.3% second frame decline to $3,126,782 and it sank 63.4% in its third session to $1,145,159.  The domestic run closed with only $14,011,084.

The overseas release stalled at $16.4 million, bringing the worldwide numbers to $30.4M.  FOX would see returned about $16.7M after theaters take their percentage of the gross — leaving tens of millions worth of P&A expenses in the red and the budget untouched by the theatrical receipts.
