Putting 16 Blocks for #16 was actually not intentional, but when I realized what I had done, I figured I may as well roll with it LOL
Your other one is correct as well.

It didn't get much play here. I blinked and it was gone from theaters.


It did 16 mil opening weekend. 52 mil lifetime US gross  and 90 mil world wide. That's not great. 



Gothika did better with 19 mil opening weekend. 59 mil lifetime US gross and 141.5 mil worldwide.

Don't get me wrong I think Identity is a great film it just didn't do as well as it should have.

I'm pretty sure I don't know the remaining three.

So, to (maybe) help out others: I've a feeling either #5 or #15 (or both) stars Vin Diesel, Bruce Willis or Steven Seagal. Am I even close?
