If you needed any more confirmation of just how extremely cancelled Kevin Spacey is, the receipts for his new film are in. It took only $126 across America on its first day of release.

Billionaire Boys Club, which also starred Baby Driver's Ansel Elgort and Kingsman's Taron Egerton, took $126 on Saturday and $162 on Sunday. That's an average of about six people going to see it in each of the eight locations which the film opened in. By contrast, Spacey's last big film, Baby Driver, opened in 3,226 theaters across America.

This, presumably, is exactly why Ridley Scott dumped Spacey from All The Money In The World and reshot his bits with Christopher Plummer once the accusations of indecent assault and harassment were levelled at Spacey.
