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.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor's film is only screening at 10 select theatres in the U.S. and had a quiet opening on Friday. The film suffers from not being released in Los Angeles or NY, instead opting for a quiet release in cities scattered across the US such as Phoenix, Detroit, New Orleans, Miami and Hartford.

The stunningly low revenue generated from the film breaks down to an average of under $13 per location where the movie was shown - which in many places is less than the price of a single movie ticket.

The final box office haul for the weekend had not been released as of press time.

In October last year, actor Anthony Rapp alleged the Kevin Spacey had made sexual advances on him when he was 14-years-old. Since then Spacey, now 59, has not only been staying out of the limelight, but is being kept out of the limelight.

Spacey was accused of sexual assault by many men over the past year, but distributor Vertical Entertainment chose to release the movie anyways as it was produced years before the allegations were publicly known.

Since the allegations, Spacey lost out on several projects, including the popular Netflix series House of Cards that wrote him out of the protagonist's role and Christopher Plummer's All The Money In The World that was released only after all of Spacey's scenes were re-shot with another actor.

Distributor Vertical Entertainment said it made the decision to release Billionaire Boys Club as they did not think the "reprehensible allegations of one person's past" should be at the expense of the entire cast and crew. That makes "Billionaire Boys Club", of which he has a supporting role, Spacey's first foray into the public life since the allegations.
