Kevin Spacey‘s Billionaire Boys Club opened to an abysmal $618 USD over the weekend, following the actor’s sexual misconduct allegations. The crime drama also starring Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton opened in 11 theaters across the United States, as the film was previously released on premium VOD last month where it tracked number 13 on iTunes.

According to THR and the average ticket price of $9.27 USD, that means only roughly six people showed up to each of the 11 theaters over the weekend to see the film. The film tells the real-life story of Los Angeles investment group established by Joseph Henry Gamsky back in 1983, dissecting the financial schemes that made their masterminds first rich in the first place and then takes a look at how they lost it all.

Vertical Entertainment previously released a statement back when Spacey’s allegations first came up, stating:

“We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one person’s behavior — that were not publicly known when the film was made almost 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. In the end, we hope audiences make up their own minds as to the reprehensible allegations of one person’s past, but not at the expense of the entire cast and crew present on this film.”
