How bad is United Passions, the movie about FIFA estimated to have cost $30 million? It grossed $918 on its opening weekend -- June 6-7 -- making it the worst box office opening ever in the United
FIFA helped finance the movie starring Tim Roth (as Sepp Blatter), Gerard Depardieu (as
Jules Rimet) and Sam Neil (as Joao Havelange) as FIFA presidents.
The movie, which first came out in
2014, is intended to portray Blatter as working to clean up corruption.
The film was widely panned by critics, who called it "pure cinematic excrement" and "cringe-worthy,
self-aggrandizing," among other things.
