New movie Billionaire Boys Club starring Kevin Spacey has taken a paltry $126 (£98.78, €110.06) in the US box office on opening day.

The movie opened on limited release on Friday 17 August.

Billionaire Boys Club also stars Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, Emma Roberts and Jeremy Irvine.

Its Rotten Tomatoes score makes for even more embarrassing reading. It’s currently certified 13% ‘rotten’, based on eight reviews.

‘All popped collars, douchey bros’

Writing for the Hollywood Reporter, one critic said: ‘It’s a derivative bore, all popped collars, douchey bros and hand-me-down psychology, that gets its characters up to their necks in borrowed money just long enough to have it really hurt when the accounts run dry.’

Last month, Robin Wright spoke out for the first time on the accusations of sexual abuse leveled against Kevin Spacey by various men.

Spacey was Wright’s costar in the Netflix series House of Cards.

She said she was ‘surprised’ and ‘ultimately saddened’ by what transpired.

‘A respectful, professional relationship,’ was how Wright described her interactions with Spacey.

‘He was so great with me… never disrespectful to me. That’s my personal experience, that’s the only thing I feel that I have the right to talk about.’

Amidst the scandal last October, Spacey finally came out as gay after years of rumors of around his sexuality.
