London (ANI): Dame Helen Mirren"s latest flick 'Love Ranch" has bombed at the US box office. The Oscar winner actress played a brothel madam in the film, which was directed by her husband Taylor Hackford. It took a paltry 90,000 pounds in ticket sales in its first month.
Now UK cinema audiences are unlikely to see the film, which cost 10million pounds to make. Hollywood insiders say it will probably go straight to DVD. "It's a disaster," the Sun quoted one executive as saying. Dame Helen, 65, researched her role by spending a day observing at a brothel - and even posed topless to promote the film.
