  • Kevin Spacey’s new film did unbelievably bad at the box office

The film's distributor agonized over what to do with the film since its release date was to have come after a list of accusations of sexual abuse were lodged against Kevin Spacey. That's only $12.60 per cinema - the average cinema ticket price is the USA is around $9, suggesting some screens had only one person, or even none, watching the film.

Last month, Scotland Yard announced that Spacey faces three additional allegations of sexual assault, according to the Guardian, bringing the total number of criminal charges against Spacey in Britain to six.

The film opened in smaller venues and smaller cities, as well. The film version stars Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton and Emma Roberts, with Spacey in a supporting role as a Beverly Hills high-roller.

The Hollywood Reporter described the film's cinema debut as a "career low at the box office" for the Oscar-winning performer.

The film reportedly cost $15 million to make.

But he denied "doing something behind political ideology or viewpoints", claiming that's the "real question behind the question". Earlier this month, YouTube, Facebook and Apple banned Jones' content. "There's not one single definition", Dorsey said.

In October last year, actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Kevin Spacey had made sexual advances on him when he was 14-years-old. Following the allegations, Netflix removed Kevin from their political TV show House of Cards. 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 based on the real-life story of a group of young men living in LA, who started a Ponzi scheme, back in the 1980s.

In a statement released to The Independent, the studio said they hoped the movie, which was made around two years ago, wouldn't be affected by the recent charges against Spacey.

"In the end", Vertical's statement said, "we hope audiences make up their own minds". Spacey plays real-life investor and con-man Rob Levin in the film.

And it is unclear what portion of the US$30 was made on the film's first day, so an exact comparison to Billionaire Boys Club is hard. Eventually, Vertical Entertainment chose to release it video on demand (VOD) and then in a limited theatrical run, saying it was "neither an easy nor insensitive decision".
