22nd March 2004 : OZ from reports on the box office performance of Secondhand Lions in Australia :

" It opened in Australia on 26 February 2004, played for three weeks in just six out of thirty or forty Greater Union cinema complexes and has now DISAPPEARED from their movie line-up, probably forever. I checked the other cinema chain, Hoyts, and it only ever played in one of their theatres.

Fellow fan, anthony nicholas reports that Secondhand Lions did only $AUD20,638 in the Australian box office. Apparently, Secondhand Lions was extremely poorly marketed in Australia, which is a crying shame for such a highly anticipated and wonderful film.

The overseas gross is set to increase with the film expanding into France on 18 February 2004 , Brazil on 19 March 2004 , Australia on 25 March 2004 and Argentina on 22 April 2004 . Still no word on when the film is opening in the lucrative Japan market , where Haley Joel Osment still remains popular.

14th October 2003

Secondhand Lions drops to 9th place in the US domestic box office in its 4th week. With US$35.4 million in Box Office takings so far, it is on track to end its domestic run with about US$40 - 50 million in gross Box Office.

In Singapore, Secondhand Lions improves its Box Office ranking by moving up to 5th place, dropping a mere 23% in Box Office takings compared to the opening weekend. In spite of a low season due to the school exams , Secondhand Lions is performing reasonably well with almost US$74,000 in gross takings and should have at least a 4 week run in Singapore.


10th October 2003

With a slew of new films opening this weekend, including MGM studio's family oriented "Good Boy!" to lure moviegoers from Secondhand Lions' target audience, Secondhand Lions will be dropped from 469 screens and with only 2,563 screens left to fill , its Box Office is likely to see a steep decline .
