Billionaire Boys Club earns R1.8K on opening day

That actor is Kevin Spacey, a two-time Oscar winner, whose last movie, “Baby Driver,” raked in $20.5 million (about R292m) on its opening day. His latest movie, “Billionaire Boys Club,” brought in a career-low opening day total for the actor, according to the Hollywood Reporter: $126 (about R1 838).

Sometime over the weekend, a moviegoer at the Deer Valley Cinema in Antioch, California, forked over $9 (about R131) to sit in an otherwise empty theatre – unwittingly becoming a solitary, popcorn-chomping symbol of just how forcefully the #MeToo movement has rocked Hollywood, and one actor in particular.

In between those two releases, more than a dozen men have accused Spacey of groping, fondling, or s.e.xually assaulting them or making unwanted advances, a list full of people with their own IMDB pages who say Spacey’s bad behaviour goes back decades.

The accusations started in October when actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey made sexual advances toward him in 1985. The two knew each other from Broadway work, and Rapp told BuzzFeed that, at one point, Spacey picked him up, plopped him onto a bed and climbed on top of him. At the time, Spacey was 26. Rapp was 14.

In a tweet that served as a controversial public acknowledgement that he is gay, Spacey offered Rapp “the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour.”

The statement alluded to other “stories out there about me,” a foreshadowing of the allegations to come.

In the following weeks, men on two continents accused Spacey of similar assaults during parties at the actor’s house, at bars and pubs, or on set. Several of the accusers said they were underage when the alleged assaults occurred. Many said they didn’t come forward earlier because they feared no one would believe their stories over the word of a wildly successful actor and producer, a power dynamic they say Spacey exploited.

“Kevin Spacey is a sexual predator,” Harry Dreyfuss, an actor and writer in Los Angeles and the son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, told BuzzFeed News in recounting his own experience.

Last month, Scotland Yard announced that Spacey faces three additional allegations of sexual assault, according to the Guardian, bringing the total number of criminal charges against Spacey in Britain to six.
