$95,020,213 on a $40,000,000 budget.
These numbers might not sound like a gigantic victory, but touching biopics about those who came before us aren’t often released with expectations of huge profits. Instead, they’re typically passion projects in which the filmmakers and producers hope to relate a story that really needs to be told, and if they can make a little profit too, that’s all the better. Once the Blu-ray money is counted on this effort, however, those involved should make more than just a tiny profit. Good for them too. This material was handled with class, sophistication and the right amount of brutal honesty. Robinson deserved another moment in the sun, and this film really did deliver, not only for the star athlete but for everyone who desperately misses the Brooklyn Dodgers.
