The Number of the Day: $11

If you made a film and it was set to premiere in a real movie theater, you’d probably assume that—worst case scenario—a handful of the people associated with making it (and maybe their friends and family) would show up to see it.

Apparently not.

A new film, aptly named The Worst Movie Ever, recently premiered at Laemmle Sunset 5 in LA and grossed a grand total of $11 in its opening weekend.

Related Fact: The Worst Movie Ever seems poised to challenge Zyzzyx Road, a 2006 independent film starring Katherine Heigl, which famously cost around $1.2 million to make and brought in $30 at the box office.
