It looks like Kevin Spacey’s rebound won’t come as quickly as one might expect. According to new reports, Billionaire Boys Club, the very first movie Kevin Spacey has done since being accused of sexual misconduct, made approximately $130 on its first day in theaters.
The Hollywood Reporter states the movie was one of the worst performing for the actor, who has won a stunning number of accolades, including Academy Awards and Golden Globes.
The film, which stars Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton, came out in 10 different theatres across the United States on Friday, just one month after distributors released it through video on demand.
The magazine stated that it must’ve had a location average of around $12.60, which isn’t even two movie tickets if one considers the average ticket price as $9.27 in America.

Back in June, Vertical Entertainment said the movie would be given a limited released in the United States in spite of the #MeToo allegations that effectively blackballed Spacey’s career.
At the end of 2017, in October, Anthony Rapp accused Kevin of coming on to him when he was just 14-years-old and Kevin was 26-years-old. Following his story, many other Hollywood actors made claims that Spacey was either a bully or sexually aggressive on set.
In a statement released to The Independent, the studio said they hoped the movie, which was made around two years ago, wouldn’t be affected by the recent charges against Spacey.
The studio added they don’t condone any forms of sexual harassment on any level. Their choice to release the movie was more about the hundreds of crew members and other cast members to see their finished product reach the masses.
Currently, the movie cost $15 million to produce and was panned by the audiences on Rotten Tomatoes. However, the allegations against Spacey probably played a crucial role in most reviewers’ decisions.
