Only $475,000!!!! That's craziness.
Gah! Boxofficemojo isn't working right now. However, I do remember the last time I looked up brick it had totalled over 2 million in box office sales. (I'll post it as soon as I can)
Rian, I know you don't get to see all that profit, but at least it shows that movies like this can actually MAKE money. Hopefully this leads to more films like this, as well as more work for you!
 - Update! As of July 2nd...it's listed as making just over 3 million worldwide. Awesome job Rian!Linky-poo!
Well...it cost about 475 grand to actually prep, shoot, and print the movie. So yes, when looking at those numbers, 3 million seems like a grand ol' profit. However, the fact of the matter is that Focus paid 2 million for the distribution rights. So in that regard, the profits aren't looking quite as high. And of course, that number doesn't include the money spent for the small, but well intentioned and stylistic ad campaign, which always costs a lot of money.
Don't get me wrong, Brick is still doing rather well, all factors considered. But...yeah.
