Kevin Spacey’s new movie bombs at the box office with $126 opening day

  • Kevin Spacey’s new movie, “Billionaire Boy’s Club,”
    premiered to an abysmal $126 on Friday, according to The
    Hollywood Reporter. 
  • THR estimates the movie made just over $600 the entire
    weekend in 11 theaters, and that an average of six people saw
    the movie in each theater.
  • It’s Spacey’s first on-screen appearance since being
    accused of sexual misconduct last year.


Kevin Spacey is in theaters again, but you wouldn’t know it based
on the movie’s horrendous showing at the box office in its
opening weekend. 

The movie, “Billionaire Boy’s Club,” opened on Friday to just
$126, according to The Hollywood Reporter. THR
estimates that it most likely made only $618 the entire weekend
in 11 theaters based on the average ticket price of $9.27. That
means an average of only six people showed up for the movie in
each theater.

It’s easily a career low for Spacey, who was accused by several
men of sexual misconduct last year, most notably actor Anthony
Rapp, who alleged that Spacey made unwanted
sexual advances
toward him at a party when Rapp was 14.

This marks the first on-screen appearance of Spacey’s since the
allegations came to light. Netflix fired him from the sixth and
final season of “House of Cards,” which premieres this fall
starring Robin Wright, and director Ridley Scott replaced Spacey
with Christopher Plummer last minute in his movie “All the Money
in the World” last year.

“Billionaire Boy’s Club,” a crime drama that also stars Spacey’s
“Baby Driver” co-star Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton, opened to
little press and enthusiasm. It premiered at the Sundance Film
Festival in January and came to VOD in July before taking the
precarious step into cinemas. 

“We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one
person’s behavior — that were not publicly known when the film
was made almost two-and-a-half years ago and from someone who has
a small, supporting role in 
Billionaire Boys
Club — does not tarnish the release of the film,”
Vertical Entertainment, the film’s distributor, had said in a
statement to THR. “In the end, we hope audiences make up their
own minds as to the reprehensible allegations of one
person’s past, but not at the expense of the entire cast and
crew present on this film.”

It looks like audiences did make up their minds, and chose
not to see the movie.
