(Newser) – The hits just keep on coming for Kevin Spacey, but they're not of the box-office hit variety: Spacey's latest film, which wrapped well before he was accused of sexual assault, was released on video on demand last month and whimpered into theaters on Friday. Specifically, 10 theaters and to the tune of $126, which the Hollywood Reporter notes is "a per location average of $12.60, which doesn't even equal two tickets." The tally appears to include what amounted to a private screening for one moviegoer each in Antioch, Calif., and Minneapolis, while a theater in Middletown, Conn., racked up the day's high of $45. The movie also stars Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, Emma Roberts, and Cary Elwes.
