If Kevin Spacey’s Hollywood career wasn’t over before this, it certainly is now. He played a small role in an independent film which recently opened in a limited number of theaters and earned a pathetic $126 dollars.
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Box Office: Kevin Spacey’s ‘Billionaire Boys Club’ Earns Abysmal $126 on Opening Day
Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey is enduring a career low at the box office this weekend.
The ensemble crime-drama Billionaire Boys Club quietly opened Friday in 10 theaters scattered in select states across the U.S. The indie film earned an abysmal $126 for the day, following its release on premium VOD last month, according to those with access to theater grosses.
Put another way, that’s a per location average of $12.60, which doesn’t even equal two tickets if going by the current average ticket price of $9.27. For the full weekend, Billionaire Boys Club could have trouble hitting $1,000 — by far the worst showing of a film starring Spacey. Titles that debut first on VOD aren’t generally big draws at the box office, but Billionaire Boys Club is faring particularly poorly.
Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton share top billing in Billionaire Boys Club, followed by Spacey. Emma Roberts, Jeremy Irvine, Cary Elwes, Judd Nelson and Billie Lourd also star in the movie, which is based on the real-life club of the same name that made headlines in Southern California in the 1980s. Spacey plays real-life Beverly Hills high-roller Ron Levin.
This is it for Spacey. These numbers will seal his fate in film as box office poison.
