Kevin Spacey’s Latest Movie Made A Pathetic Amount Of Money. Here’s What It Earned
Kevin Spacey’s “Billionaire Boy’s Club” made less than $500 in its opening weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter reported the following:
The ensemble crime-drama Billionaire Boys Club quietly opened Friday in eight theaters scattered in select states across the U.S. The indie film earned an abysmal $126 for the day and another $162 on Saturday for a two-day total of just $287 following its release on premium VOD last month, according to those with access to theater grosses. For the full weekend, Billionaire Boys Club could have trouble making much more than $425.
Put another way, that’s a per location average of roughly $53 for the weekend. If going by the average ticket price to date of $9.27, that means fewer than six people showed up in each cinema.
The plot of the movie, according to IMDB, is, “A group of wealthy boys in Los Angeles during the early 1980s establish a ‘get-rich-quick’ scam that turns deadly.”
It seems interesting enough, but apparently having the top actor in the film getting accused of sexual misconduct is a great way to tank a movie. (RELATED: KEVIN SPACEY MAY HAVE SUCCESSFULLY DESTROYED HIS UPCOMING MOVIE)
It’s hard to put into words how embarrassing this is for any movie. Only six people per theater? How’s that possible? It literally makes next to sense. Even with all the problems swirling around Spacey, you’d still think something with his name could bring in a couple grand. I guess that’s not the case at all.
I think it’s probably more than safe to say that Spacey’s career is probably over, if it wasn’t already killed by the sexual misconduct claims. You can’t put out a movie, have it earn less than what’s in the bank account of most teenagers and expect to keep acting. It’s just not going to happen.
