The movie “Billionaire Boys Club,” which features disgraced actor Kevin Spacey, made just $126 at the box office on its opening day Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.


Sources told THR that the film, which opened in 10 theaters in select states, that the total marked “the worst showing of a film” starring Spacey. THR notes that the total averages out to fewer than two tickets sold for the film per venue.


The film’s poor showing comes months after Spacey faced several accusations of sexual harassment from coworkers on the hit Netflix series “House of Cards.”


Netflix booted Spacey from the show and a sexual assault case against the actor is reportedly being reviewed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.


Vertical Entertainment, the distributor of the movie, had previously released a statementimploring moviegoers to enjoy the film despite Spacey’s role, which the company characterized as minor and said it hoped would not take away from the overall production.


“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 and from someone who has a small, supporting role in Billionaire Boys Club – does not tarnish the release of the film.”


“At the same time, this is neither an easy nor insensitive decision to release this film in theaters, but we believe in giving the cast, as well as hundreds of crew members who worked hard on the film, the chance to see their final product reach audiences,” the statement added.


The movie has a 47 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes from its audience score.
