FIFA has given everyone yet another reason to point and laugh at the perverse governing body's grand opinion of itself.

The oft-ridiculed film "United Passions," a propaganda project funded by FIFA and starring Tim Roth as embattled president Sepp Blatter, has been pulled from theaters in the United States after a historically futile opening.

The movie cashed in a laughable $918 over its opening weekend, making it the lowest-grossing film in American history.

The Guardian has more details:

The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed the self-congratulatory project, starring Tim Roth as controversial outgoing president Sepp Blatter, scored the puniest total of all time in North America. With a final weekend return of just $918 from 10 cinemas, Frederic Auburtin’s £17 million drama - FIFA paid most of the costs - lines up ahead of such titans of modern cinema as 2012 vampire rock musical I Kissed a Vampire ($1,380) and 2013 animated adventure Last Flight of the Champion ($1,493).

A project that some have described as "pure cinematic excrement," the film will never be able to hurt anybody's eyeballs again. It's almost as if being a historically corrupt organization and having the massive scope of your transgressions put on blast for the world will turn people off of your propaganda.
