Despite starring Oscar-winners Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins, the $11 million budget film Misconduct managed to make less than £100 in its first week.

According to The Guardian, the film only showed on five screens around the countering, taking only £97 in a seven day period — an on-site average of less than £19.40.

The low number was likely down to a number of reasons, primarily that the film’s cinema release coincided with its digital release and received overwhelmingly negative reviews from critics.

It also had stiff half-term competition from the likes of Warcraft and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, both of which started their cinema runs at the same time as Misconduct.

Also starring in the film is Josh Duhamel, Alice Eve, Julia Stiles and Malin Åkerman. Duhamel stars as the lead lawyer, who gets caught up in a sketchy kidnap and murder case.
