Kevin Spacey’s latest film was a box office dud on its opening day in theaters, taking in just $126, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The crime-drama “Billionaire Boys” opened in eight theaters in several states and earned an estimated $500 for the weekend after it was released via video on demand last month, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The movie is not being shown in large cities such as New York or Los Angeles, but it can be seen in Miami, New Orleans and Phoenix, Entertainment Weekly reported.
It was Spacey’s first film release since a series of sexual allegations were made last year against the Academy Award-winning actor, Newsweek reported. The $126 boils down to about 13 tickets, the magazine reported.
Spacey portrays real-life con artist Ron Levin in the film, which stars Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts and Taron Egerton.
Spacey, 59, was fired from the Netflix series “House of Cards” last November.
Actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of trying to force himself on Rapp during the 1980s, when Rapp was 14 and Spacey 26.
Soon afterward, a former television anchor accused Spacey of sexually assaulting her son. Twenty people who worked with Spacey at London’s Old Vic story also accused him of inappropriate behavior.
