Its got hot young talent like “Baby Driver” star Ansel Elgort and “Kingsman” lead Taron Egerton along with solid supporting names like Emma Roberts, Jeremy Irvine, Billie Lourd, Cary Elwes and Judd Nelson.
But ensemble crime-drama “Billionaire Boys Club,” which also has the disgraced Kevin Spacey in a key supporting role, proved a massive dud at the box-office. The indie film, which has already been available for rental via premium VOD services for several weeks now, opened Friday in eight theaters scattered in select states across the U.S. and is set to pull in an estimated $500 for the full weekend.
That’s a $63 per-screen average – meaning only seven people showed up in each cinema over the three days. It’s by far the worst showing for all involved in the project. The film is based on the real-life club of the same name that made headlines in Southern California in the 1980s with Spacey playing Beverly Hills high-roller Ron Levin.
