New Kevin Spacey movie makes $425 for weekend

  • Kevin Spacey in a trailer for Ridley Scott's new movie before he was cut

Technically it made only US$20 as the film's producer and star Leo Grillo refunded two tickets, totalling US$10 in value, to a member of the film's crew who had paid for herself and a friend to see the film.

Following the public allegations against Spacey, Vertical Entertainment addressed the hard decision of moving forward with the film's release.

It was released last month on video-on-demand and put in "limited release" in cinemas this month.

The film chronicles the real-life club of the same name that made headlines in Southern California during the 1980s when a get-rich-quick scheme turned sideways on the high-rolling people involved. It stars Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts, and Taron Egerton, with Spacey playing real-life con artist, Ron Levin.

The poor showing makes it the worst ever for a film starring 59-year-old Spacey.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the move is expected to gross around $1,000 (€878) from its overall release, signalling a new low in the disgraced actor's career.

In October a year ago, actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Kevin sexually harassed him when he was 14 and the star was 26.

Manchester United outplayed in Brighton once again
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola throws the ball to his defender Benjamin Mendy against Huddersfield on Sunday. Mourinho has a reputation as a defensive coach, and it is one that he has fairly earned over most of his career.

He was sacked from Season 6 of his popular Netflix series "House of Cards", which will be ending after one final season without him.

Distributor Vertical Entertainment said that the film was made before allegations about Spacey's conduct were made public.

"In the end", Vertical's statement said, "we hope audiences make up their own minds".

It also said the claims against Spacey were not publicly known at the time of filming.

And it is unclear what portion of the US$30 was made on the film's first day, so an exact comparison to Billionaire Boys Club is hard.

Since the allegations, Spacey lost out on several projects, including the popular Netflix series House of Cards that wrote him out of the protagonist's role and Christopher Plummer's All The Money In The World that was released only after all of Spacey's scenes were re-shot with another actor. Eventually, Vertical Entertainment chose to release it video on demand (VOD) and then in a limited theatrical run, saying it was "neither an easy nor insensitive decision".
