  • The WWE Films division has made a grand total of $300,000 in profit with their three movie releases; See No Evil, The Marine and The Condemned. Between See No Evil and The Marine, the company made $16 million in profit. However, Steve Austin’s movie The Condemned was a huge money loser as it almost put WWE Films’ profitability in the red. WWE is estimating losses at $15.7 million for the release of The Condemned.
  • In its first week release on DVD, The Game Plan starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sold 500,017 copies. We don’t have a figure on its performance during the second week, but it is said to be almost as good. It was the top-selling DVD of any kind two weeks into its release. As of February 3rd, nearly three weeks ago, the DVD has grossed $18.67 million.
