Kevin Spacey is Back in the "Billionaire Boys Club" Trailer

Kevin Spacey is back! Only, don’t call this a comeback. This is a movie the actor shot two years ago.

The trailer for The Billionaire Boys Club is out. In the film, Spacey plays—get this—an extremely wealthy man who abuses his power and takes advantage of people.

The movie, which kind looks like The Wolf of Wall Street if it were made by teenagers on a budget instead of Martin Scorsese, is about a 1980s Los Angeles Ponzi scheme ring. It features attractive young male stars Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton, and Emma Roberts dressed up as Pris from Blade Runner for some reason.

No, this isn’t a comeback. This is a distributor trying to eek out a profit for a movie they paid for long before sh*t went down. Still, it’s surprising, and a little unsettling, that Spacey is featured so prominently in the marketing.

Last October, Rent and Star Trek Discover star Anthony Rapp told Buzzfeed that Spacey  made sexual advances when Rapp was a minor. This led to a swift, industry-wide fallout for the actor, who has now been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 30 men.

Shortly after Rapp’s bombshell, director Ridley Scott and Sony Pictures made international headlines with an Eleventh Hour decision to remove Spacey from the historical thriller All the Money in the World, replacing his screen time with Christopher Plummer in the role of J. Paul Getty.

Netflix forcibly removed Spacey from the final season of House Cards, and now Robin Wright is the new President Underwood. That automatically means this is going to be the best House of Cards season in like five years.

The press tour for The Billionaire Boys Club—if there is one—sounds like it’s going to be a doozy. I kind of just want to grab a bucket of popcorn, sit on the sidelines and watch it all go down. It’s bound to be more entertaining than the movie itself.

The Billionaire Boys Club opens in limited theaters July 19, and you can see it if you’re interested!

The Razzie Awards Honored Kevin Spacey & Other #TimesUp Villains With An "In Memoriam"

Even the Razzies are celebrating the ongoing #MeToo/#TimesUp movement.

Awards season was at its height this weekend with the Oscars and the Razzies celebrating the best and the worst of movie making respectively.

On Saturday (March 3), the 38th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards, most commonly known as the Razzies, revealed the “winners” who made the worst contributions to Hollywood in 2017.

But that’s not all.

In a video, shared below, the Razzies also decided to include an “In Memoriam” to remember the Hollywood creatives and executives who were called out for their sexual harassing tyranny.

Some faces included in the video are Harvey Weinstein, Casey Affleck, Brett Ratner, Woody Allen, Lous C.K., Donald Trump, James Franco, and Kevin Spacey.

Spacey has seen his career utterly destroyed after Star Trek’s Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making sexual advances at him when he was 14.

Spacey was quickly fired from his role in Netflix’s House of Cards and he was digitally removed from the movie All the Money in the World.

In addition, James Franco has taken a bit of a hit due to the allegations against him. Many believe he did not receive an Oscar nomination for his role in The Disaster Artist because of the many claims against him.

While we’re not sure if all the careers referenced in the video are totally dead, we can say that most of them are hurting.

As for the rest of the Razzies, several films/actors gained dishonorable mentions. Some "winners
 were, The Emoji Movie for Worst Picture, Tom Cruise winning Worst Actor for The Mummy, and Tyler Perry winning Worst Actress for BOO! 2: A Madea Halloween.
