This movie was better received outside of the US, possibly helped by the leads Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins who were box office gold at the time.
It probably struggled due to its length at almost 3 hours. Based on a 1934 Hollywood movie "Death Takes a Holiday" it brought back together Pitt and Hopkins who had starred in "Legends of the Fall" a handful of years before.
Hopkins would frequently fall out with Director Martin Brest over his insistence on doing multiple takes.
One interesting alleged item of trivia had to be as Meet Joe Black was one of the few films showing the first trailer for Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, allegedly droves of Star Wars fans bought tickets for the film, only to leave after the trailer showed.
