Aside from making a lot of noise at political protests and growing the world's rattiest rattail, Shia LaBeouf appears in films sometimes, a career choice that he might want to reconsider after seeing the box office numbers for his latest role.

That's because during its opening weekend, Man Down - a post apocalyptic war drama that sees our man Shia as an Afghanistan veteran suffering from PTSD - took a grand total of seven Great British pounds during its opening weekend.

We're not sure how that's even possible, considering the fact that a 2017 cinema ticket costs about the same as a family holiday to the Seychelles, but the numbers don't lie. One person saw the film. And that person, given the apparent price of the ticket, was more than likely a toddler.

A toddler, Shia.

These embarrassing numbers do, however, come with a slight caveat, as Man Down was only shown in one venue, the Reel Cinema in Burnley, whole being simultaneously released digitally on demand, making the theatrical release something of an afterthought.

Speaking to LadBible, Paul Dergarabedian, Senior Analyst at ccmScores said: "Interestingly the film earned a not insignificant $454,490 in North America in the wake of its Dec 2, 2016 release.

"Perhaps all this talk about the £7 takings will boost interest in the film on home video since it's currently on iTunes - I believe people may want to check it out and see what the fuss is about," he added.

There's always iTunes, Shia.
