Dade Hayes reports in Variety that Zyzzyxx Road grossed a grand total of $30 at the box office this year.
That's no typo. It's the lowest tally for any pic since modern record-keeping began in the 1980s.
The vigilante thriller starring Tom Sizemore, Katherine Heigl and Leo Grillo bore the ominous tagline "Dead Ahead." Like many on the dishonor roll of 60-plus titles cuming less than $1,000 over the past two decades, its stint in a single theater had more to do with contracts or four-wall rentals than mass audience desertion. Unheralded, it opened to $20 in February in Dallas, tacking on an additional 10-spot (repeat biz?) before slinking off to the video shelf.
