United Passions is lowest-grossing film in U.S. box office history
FIFA-funded movie United Passions is the lowest-grossing film in U.S. box office history, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
To qualify for this title, a movie must be screened at a minimum of 10 theaters.
The film, starring Tim Roth as FIFA president Sepp Blatter, brought in just $918 in its 10 American cinema showings and cost an estimated $29 million to produce. Most of the movie's funding came from FIFA.
Director Frederic Auburtin called the movie "a disaster" earlier in the week.
The movie fared better in Russia, where the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be played, earning $158,000.
The movie has been pulled from showing additional U.S. theaters. It has a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
