Yeah, The Spirits Within is considered one of the biggest box office bombs in history.
Poor box office performance ($32 million in North America), combined with the astronomical cost of production ($137 million, plus a further $30 million for marketing), essentially bankrupted Square Pictures, the subsidiary of Square that produced it, although Square Pictures did survive long enough to produce an animated tie-in to The Matrix, Final Flight of the Osiris. The film made only $55 million more in overseas box office, meaning total losses were approximately $123 million (the studio typically receives half the box office gross). The domestic box office loss was at the time apparently the largest in film history, though it was surpassed in 2002 by Treasure Planet, another animated flop.
There is speculation that the failure of this film, coupled with other circumstances at the time and following years, proved to be the catalyst that inspired Square Co., Ltd.'s merger with Enix.
