Kevin Spacey's 'Billionaire Boys Club' Makes Only $126 on Opening Day

Yes, you're reading that right. According to Mashable, Kevin Spacey's new film, Billionaire Boys Club, made only $126 at the box office during its opening day.

The film opened Friday in only 10 theaters in the U.S. and included an all star cast consisting of Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, Emma Roberts, Jeremy Irvine, Cary Elwes, Judd Nelson, and Billie Lourd.

The movie is based on the real Billionaire Boys Club, an infamous social club that convinced the sons of wealthy Southern Californian families to get rich quick with Ponzi schemes in the 1980s.

Billionaire Boys Club was filmed in 2015, before the accusations of sexual assault against Spacey came to light. Spacey has been dropped from Netflix's House of Cards and was replaced in All the Money in the World, but his role in Billionaire Boys remained. The film's distributor Vertical Entertainment told TheWrap that they hoped the "distressing allegations pertaining to one person's behavior ... do not tarnish the release."

The statements assures people that Vertical Entertainment doesn't condone sexual harassment, but added that they "believe in giving the cast, as well as hundreds of crew members who worked hard on the film, the chance to see their final product reach audiences."
