Shia LaBeouf may have made the record books after the box-office gross from his latest movie.

"Man Down," starring LaBeouf, grossed $8.71 this weekend in the U.K., the equivalent of selling one ticket, according to Time.

"That opening could be in the Guinness World Records or something," Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore, told Variety.

The military thriller about a marine who returned home from Afghanistan to find America in post-apocalyptic disarray didn’t thrill anyone, Time reported.

It has a 15 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

LaBeouf got his fame for successful films such as “Transformers” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”

However, his popularity recently spiked after he released his motivational speech, "Just Do It," which quickly became an internet meme.
