Shia LaBeouf's latest film took £7 on its opening weekend in the UK


Shia LaBeouf's latest release, Man Down, has raked in the princely sum of £7 at the UK box office across its opening weekend.

Admittedly, it was only released in one theatre anywhere in the country – Barnsley’s Reel Cinema – but that’s still a poor showing considering it opened on Friday to a series of totally empty auditoriums.

The film, which features LaBeouf as a US marine back from Afghanistan with PTSD, has a relatively star-studded cast, including Gary Oldman, Jai Courtney and Kate Mara, and was directed by Dito Montiel. It was released in the US in December, with UK audiences apparently not clamouring especially loudly to get the chance to see it themselves.


The film has not been well received; the critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes is a pungent 15%. To spare producers’ blushes somewhat, Man Down was released on various digital platforms at the same time as its theatrical release, and will arrive on DVD and Blu-ray next month.

It has not been a great year for poor Shia so far. His anti-Trump art installation had to be moved from New York to New Mexico after it became infested by peacocking neo-nazis, while he was arrested in January for misdemeanor assault following an alleged scuffle at the original site.
