  • Kevin Spacey Flick 'Billionaire Boys Club' Earns $126 on Opening Day

The film received a quiet opening in America on Friday, only ten screens across the country were screening it, and it made a minuscule $126 on its opening day.

The movie - a crime drama that also stars Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton - opened without fanfare in 10 theaters in select states across the USA on Friday, a month after first being released through video on demand. Factoring in the average ticket price in the United States, an estimate of only six people showed up in each cinema over the weekend to see the film.

Spacey was sacked by Netflix from House Of Cards after Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp alleged 26-year-old Spacey made sexual advances towards him when he was 14.

Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton share top billing in "Billionaire Boys Club", followed by Spacey. The crime-drama was also released on premium VOD last month.

In wake of the sexual assault allegations facing Kevin Spacey, the fate of the film was, for a while, up in the air.

In the film Spacey plays a real-life Beverly Hills identity named Ron Levin.

Spacey has kept a low profile since the accusations hit headlines nearly 10 months ago, when actor Anthony Rapp went public with claims about a decades-old incident with the Oscar victor.

Spacey, 59, was sacked from the Netflix series House of Cards previous year when allegations emerged.

He was due to appear in Ridley Scott's feature, All The Money In The World, but his scenes were re-shot with actor Christopher Plummer taking over the role following the allegations.

"We don't condone sexual harassment on any level and we fully support victims of it", Vertical Entertainment, which released the film, said in a statement to USA Today. Such is the case with Billionaire Boys Club, likely the last title you'd want on a movie starring a guy with a well-known yen for the underaged.

A Wrinkle in Time, which was directed by Ava DuVernay and starred Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, was perceived to be a hit but grossed only US$132 million on a US$130 million budget, meaning it covered its filming costs but fell well short of covering its marketing, distribution and exhibition costs.

But Spacey's role in Billionaire Boys Club wasn't scrapped - its distributor Vertical Entertainment told TheWrap that they hoped the "distressing allegations pertaining to one person's not tarnish the release".
