Shia LaBeouf's 'Man Down' Sells 3 Tickets In UK Release

Shia LaBeouf's new film "Man Down" will end it's week-long run
in the United Kingdom after extremely dismal sales.

The film—which follows the actor as a U.S. soldier returning
home from Afghanistan who is suffering from PTSD—sold one,
single ticket during it's opening day in the U.K. In all fairness,
it only opened in one theater (a branch of the Reel Cinema chain
in the town of Burnley) and has only been shown once a day.

Since then, it's garnered a 200-percent box-office leap as two
more people bought tickets in the days to follow.

Well, clearly word of mouth is the explanation for the skyrocketing increase in ticket sales.

"Man Down" is an appropriate name for a movie with Shia LaBeouf in it.

Burnley would make Afghanistan look like a tourist destination. Maybe Reel thought this movie would have some local interest?

The first public showing was in September 2015 and no art house around here seemingly has picked it up. You might as well release it to Youtube by now...
