Amber Heard’s latest film just became one of the biggest flops of all time.
“London Fields”, an adaptation of a Martin Amis novel, also starring Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Sturgess, Cara Delevingne, and Johnny Depp opened after many delays to only $116,470 at the domestic box office.
The film had a wide release on 613 screens in North America, making for a per-screen average of just $190, according to Variety.
That figure marks “London Fields” as the second-worst box office debut for a wide release in North America, behind only “Proud American”, which opened to $96,076 in 2008.
Critics also universally panned the film, giving it a shocking 0 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, though according to the website audiences who saw the film liked it more, giving it a 77 per cent approval rating.
“London Fields” had a long and complicated history before its release, including a planned premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2015, which was pulled due to a lawsuit by director Mathew Cullen against the film’s producers.
Heard herself was later sued for $10 million over alleged breach of contract; the actress later countersued, with the parties settling in September.
