The Guardian reports that Man Down opened in one theater in the country — the Reel Cinema in Burnley, Lancashire — along with its release on digital platforms, and generated a total weekend gross of £7.
The film — in which LaBeouf stars as Gabriel Drummer, a U.S marine battling PTSD after serving a tour of duty in Afghanistan — has been savaged by critics, with The Telegraph’s film critic Tim Robey describing it as an “incoherent, deranged PTSD drama [that] is an insult to the intelligence.”
Variety editor Brent Lang noted that the £7 take at the UK box office meant the theater likely sold just one ticket to the film, as the average cost of a cinema ticket in the country is reportedly £7.21.
Man Down — co-starring Gary Oldman, Jai Courtney, and and Kate Mara — was released in the United States in December 2016 and currently holds a Rotten Tomatoes approval rating of just 15 percent. According to Variety, the film grossed $454,490 in its US release.
