Through a series of increasingly elaborate conceptual art pieces, Shia LaBeouf has made it clear to the movie-going public that he's not interested in being "famous" anymore. Now it appears audiences, at least in the U.K., have taken his message to heart: This past weekend his latest film, a military thriller called Man Down, grossed just £7 ($8.70) over the weekend. That's one ticket sold to one loyal Shia-fan. Yikes.
To be clear, the movie wasn't exactly positioned to be a box office smash. As Variety points out, the Dito Montiel-directed film only played in one location in Burnley, a town near Manchester, and was simultaneously rolled out on demand at the same time. A DVD and Blu-ray release are also scheduled for next month, so the theatrical release clearly wasn't a major priority for the film's distributor Lionsgate.
