Kevin Spacey’s latest movie bombed big time in theaters, making only a humiliating $126 at the box office on its opening day on Friday.

The Hollywood Reporter says such horrible showing at the box-office makes it “the worst showing of a film” in the entire career of Spacey. Such a dismal opening day earnings translate to an average of fewer than two tickets sold for the movie per venue.

The film’s distributor, Vertical Entertainment, had implored viewers before the movie’s opening to still support the film, and enjoy it despite Spacey being in it. Spacey has been mired of course in several sexual misconduct allegations. It also downplayed the disgraced actor’s role as being “minor”, anyway, and would not take away from the overall production.

The distributor said in a statement released ahead of the showing: “We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one person's behavior - that were not publicly known when the film was made almost 2.5 years ago and from someone who has a small, supporting role in Billionaire Boys Club - does not tarnish the release of the film.”

The distributor also defended their need to still release the film in spite of Spacey being in it, and at a time when all producers have distanced themselves from the actor, as it added in the same statement: “At the same time, this is neither an easy nor insensitive decision to release this film in theaters, but we 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.”

The movie also earned a poor 47 rating on Rotten Tomatoes from its audience score.

Some social media users are mocking the dismal box-office results of the movie.

Spacey got embroiled in various scandals when accusations of several sexual harassments surfaced from coworkers on the hit Netflix series “House of Cards.” The producers took him out from the series. Other movie offers for Spacey also withdrew their projects with the actor when the controversies erupted.

The allegations against Spacey has been reported in the entertainment media as being reviewed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

What do you expect? He's a pedophile. He was with Epstein the pedophile. and BILL CLINTON the pedophile. When will we wake up? To me it's an indication that people won't stand for this anymore. He probably thought he would get away with it. But he didn't. Bad call. It's sad too because he was such a great actor. I'll never watch anything of his again. I won't be able to sit through it knowing what I know.

He was a good actor, but then he became a Political Agenda spokesman & Actor.

As too many are finding out too late. Their Political diarrhea mouth has cost them BIG at the BOX-OFFICE.
