Kevin Spacey's New Movie Debut Does Not Go As Planned

  • America Confirms They Think Kevin Spacey’s A Flog. New Movie Only Makes $126 On Opening Day

The poor performance comes on the back of several sexual misconduct allegations, including one from Anthony Rapp, which resulted in Spacey being dropped from several upcoming projects, or them being removed from the release slate entirely.

The film opened in smaller venues and smaller cities, as well. Vertical Entertainment had previously stated that they hoped that the strong work of the ensemble cast - starring young talent such as Taron Egerton, Ansel Engort, Emma Roberts and Jeremy Irvine - would be enough to ensure Spacey's part in the crime drama based on a true story would not affect it too much.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the move is expected to gross around $1,000 (€878) from its overall release, signalling a new low in the disgraced actor's career.

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.

In October last year, actor Anthony Rapp alleged the Kevin Spacey had made sexual advances on him when he was 14-years-old.

Star Trek: Discovery actor Rapp told BuzzFeed News past year that he had waited two decades to publicly name Spacey as the man who allegedly abused him when he was 14. Since then Spacey, now 59, has not only been staying out of the limelight, but is being kept out of the limelight. The shows' final season will focus instead on the character portrayed by Robin Wright and her political career. Additionally, he was replaced by actor Christopher Plummer in the film "All the Money in the World" after the allegations came out.

Billionaire Boys Club is the lowest box office day intake the actor has ever received.

In a statement, distributors Vertical Entertainment defended to decision to release the film with Spacey's scenes intact.

Spacey plays Ron Levin, a con artist who masterminded a Ponzi scheme in 1980s LA.

The company chose to release the film as they did not think the "reprehensible allegations of one person's past" should be at the expense of the entire cast and crew.
