  • The news spread like wild fire in 2017.

Vertical Entertainment, the distributors of 'The Billionaire Boys Club' decided to go ahead with releasing the film despite several allegations of sexual assault on the actor. The company went ahead with the release of the film since the film was reportedly shot years before one of the lead actors, 'House Of Cards' star Kevin Spacey was accused by several men of sexual assault.

Reports suggest that Kevin Spacey starrer 'The Billionaire Boys Club' has earned a mere $126 which according to reports suggests that only 13 to 14 people turned up to watch the movie in cinema halls. The movie was released in 10 theatres across the United States of America.

As per reports, the film hit the screens on Friday, August 17 in 10 theatres across the country after it was available on VoD throughout the month of July.

Kevin has been the center of controversies throughout 2017. Kevin Spacey portrayed the character of Frank Underwood in the critically acclaimed television series 'House of Cards'. The actor was however replaced after he was involved in controversies of allegedly sexually assaulting several men. in November 2017, the Royal Victoria Hall, or the Old Vic as it is fondly called, reported that they had collected 20 testimonies which claimed that Spacey would grope and behave inappropriately with young me all the time. Out of these 20 testimonies, there were 3 people who had reportedly contacted the police when the incident took place. 

In December 2017, Gabriel Byrne who starred in 'Usual Suspects' along with Spacey revealed that the shoot for the movie was stalled for around two days since Spacey made sexual advances towards a younger actor. Spacey was all set to star in the Gore Vidal biopic titled 'Gore' and it was slated to be distributed by one of the leading online streaming portals Netflix. However, the biopic was called off and Netflix went on to end its association with that star by severing all ties with him. Spacey has worked in movies like 'Superman Returns', 'Fred Claus', '21', 'Horrible Bosses', 'Horrible Bosses 2', 'Elvis & Nixon', 'Nine Lives' and 'Baby Driver' to name a few.
