Guess how many tickets were purchased for Shia LaBeouf's new film?

The film, which stars LaBeouf as a US solider who's suffering from PTSD after returning home from Afghanistan, grossed a total of £7 ($8.70) on its opening weekend after just a single person purchased a ticket to see it.

Shia LaBeouf's war thriller Man Down premiered in a single U.K theater last weekend, and it apparently only grossed £7 ($8.70) - the equivalent of one ticket.

Along with LaBeouf, Man Down stars Jai Courtney, Kate Mara and Gary Oldman. The movie was very well-received by critics but went on to earn just $1.8 million at the box office, including roughly $570,000 in the United Kingdom, according to Box Office Mojo.

Shia LaBeouf is known for trying to make his mark by doing things differently, but we doubt that even he was not prepared the major statement his latest release made. on the box office.

The only location the film played at was the Reel Cinema in Burnley.

In fairness to the movie, it had primarily been pushed on digital on-demand platforms, pushing the emphasis away from cinemas.

Surely that's got to be a world record or something?

In fairness to Shia, what's left unsaid in the Variety story is that Man Down was released here in the USA last December. The pair formerly worked together on the 2006 film A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.

Montiel's latest offering has also received poor reviews from critics, now sitting at just 15% on Rotten Tomatoes.

A 2015 film featuring the actor-turned-performance activist, "Man Down", was released at a single theater in Lancashire, England last weekend.

However, what the media has been focusing on lately is LaBeouf's off-screen behavior.
