The weekend opening of WWE Films’ “The Marine” starring WWE Champion John Cena finished with a total gross of $7 million in over 2,500 theatres nationwide. While this wasn’t a “box office disaster”, it was definitely on the lower end of what WWE was hoping the film would draw in its opening week. This is why we didn’t see WWE bragging about the numbers the film drew this past Monday night on Raw. In comparison, “See No Evil” starring Kane earned $4.5 million in its opening weekend and garnered a total of $15 million in United States box office revenue. It should be noted that production costs for “The Marine” were $15 million.
