Kevin Spacey's new film makes just $126 on opening day

Kevin Spacey's new movie made a staggeringly low $126 at the box office this weekend

In October a year ago, actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Kevin sexually harassed him when he was 14 and the star was 26.

Following Anthony's claims, a number of people came forward accusing Spacey of sexual harassment, misconduct and assault - including eight people on the set of the political Netflix series, and 20 testimonies from people at the Old Vic, where he served as artistic director for 11 years.

The film opened Friday in only 10 theaters in the U.S.

Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, Emma Roberts, Jeremy Irvine, Cary Elwes, Judd Nelson and Billie Lourd are also in the film.

Disgraced Hollywood actor and alleged child sexual abuser Kevin Spacey's new movie, "Billionaire Boys Club", recently hit theaters and was an instant dud - earning only $126 on opening day.

Fury's father restrained as Wilder crashes Pianeta weigh
Paul Gascoigne managed to land a few friendly punches on the chin of the world heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder tonight. Fury's promoter and Wilder himself both confirmed that the bout had been arranged, with details expected to emerge next week.

"We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one person's behavior - that were not publicly known when the film was made nearly two-and-a-half years ago and from someone who has a small, supporting role in Billionaire Boys Club - does not tarnish the release of the film", a statement from Vertical read. Ridley Scott also reshot scenes for his period crime thriller All The Money In The World, replacing Spacey with Christopher Plumber.

In the film, Billionaire Boys Club, Spacey plays con man Ron Levin who ropes a group of young traders into launching a Ponzi scheme, It's based on a true story of '80s Wall Street greed.

Released on VOD last month, the film is not now showing in NY or Los Angeles but can be seen in a few cities such as Miami, New Orleans, and Phoenix.

Vertical Entertainment, the distributor of the movie, had previously released a statement imploring moviegoers to enjoy the film despite Spacey's role, which the company characterized as minor and said it hoped would not take away from the overall production.

"We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one person's behaviour - that were not publicly known when the film was made nearly two-and-a-half years ago and from someone who has a small, supporting role in Billionaire Boys Club - does not tarnish the release of the film", the statement said.
