Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf's new film took just £7 at the UK box office on its opening weekend, with just one person paying to see the film - in Burnley.
Man Down is being screened at just one venue in the country, the Reel Cinema in the Lancashire town.
Figures from the British Film Institute (BFI) show the post-apocalyptic war thriller film grossed a total of £7 between March 31 and April 2.
This suggests only one cinema-goer paid to see the film, based on the average price of a ticket at the Reel Cinema, although if the film had been released in London it would have made a marginally larger profit as tickets tend to cost a few pounds extra in the capital.
Directed by Dito Montiel, Man Down also stars Gary Oldman and Kate Mara and tells the story of US Marine Gabriel Drummer (LaBeouf) who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder following a tour in Afghanistan.
Police in Lancashire say they want to find a sex offender, missing in Burnley.
Kyle Killian, 22, of no fixed address, was initially jailed in January 2015 for sexual activity with a child under 16.
He was released from prison earlier this month and was made subject to notification requirements, which mean he has to register with police every seven days.
He should've registered with police on March 21st, and officers in Lancashire now want to find him.
He is thought to be in Burnley and has links to the Stoops estate area.
Anyone with information can contact police on 101. Alternatively independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service has new weapon to help them deal with emergencies.
It'll be used as a normal firefighting pump at Blackburn and Burnley fire stations for 6 months as part of a trial.
Parts of the vehicle were designed with aircraft fire-fighting in mind.
It includes the Stinger piercing tool designed to hammer its way through aircraft fuselages to jet water inside. But in Lancashire it'll be used to penetrate roofs so the water jet can reach maximum effectiveness inside.
The water output is 2½ times that provided by the usual fire appliance, delivering up to 5 ½ thousand litres per minute.

Lancashire Police have have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to after a council worker was assaulted in Burnley.
It happened at around 10.30am on Saturday, November 12 when the 37-year-old victim, who works as a road sweeper, was working on St James’ Road near to Costa Coffee.
He was approached by three men who took his hat from him and made him chase them around the town centre.
The victim managed to get his hat back before one of the three men ran up to him and punched him a number of times in the face.
“This was a nasty attack on the victim who was simply doing his job when he was targeted by these three men who stole his hat before being punched by one of them.
We are keen to speak to the man pictured in connection with the incident and would urge anyone who recognises him or who has any information that could assist us to come forward.”
The victim suffered a fractured eye socket which resulted in him needing metal plates.
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting log 629 of 16th November.
