What happened to Kevin Spacey's latest film 'Billionaire Boys Club'?

Kevin Spacey apologises for sexual advance claim made by former child actor

Kevin Spacey's latest film Billionaire Boys Club made a total of $126 on its opening day. Spacey was once considered an actor to look up to but after he was allegedly accused of sexual assault, his public image deteriorated, reportedly causing in poor box-office success of his film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, James Cox's Billionaire Boys Club has tanked at the box office after taking in a record-breaking low on its opening night in the United States cinemas. The earning of the film suggested an average of around two people per cinema brought the tickets on its opening day. Movie experts and analysts are assuming that the biographical drama would not be able to touch a $1000 mark in its first weekend.

According to Telegraph, before the film's release, Vertical Entertainment, the US distributor of Billionaire Boys Club, urged the viewers and the fans not to let Spacey's sexual allegations overshadow the film's story.

"We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one person's behavior – that were not publicly known when the film was made almost 2.5 years ago – do not tarnish the release," the company said in a statement. "We don't condone sexual harassment on any level and we fully support victims of it."

Written by Cox and Captain Mauzner, Billionaire Boys Club followed the story of a group of wealthy boys in the early 1980s and how they established a scam to earn money in short time. In the film, Spacey played the role of a con man Ron Levin.

The film is made against a budget of $15 million and is considered as one of the final works that Kevin Spacey filmed before all the sexual allegations against him came in light.
