United Passions, the self-congratulatory biopic of the history of Fifa, has well and truly bombed at the box office.

Upon its release in the US, the film starring Tim Roth as Sepp Blatter - which cost Fifa over $20m to produce - made just $607 (£397) in its first weekend.

In case you needed a reminder of just how "laughably awful" the film is, here's the trailer - all 116 painful seconds of it:


But thankfully for Fifa, the measly takings of the first weekend take it well beyond the worst performing films in history.

Here are nine that grossed less at the US box office:

1. Zyzzyx - $30


one cinema in Dallas for a week

2. Storage 24 - $72
