VOD is not box office.

No tickets are being sold.

I was interested in renting this one...then I watched the trailer and noped out when after a few minutes of wondering why they weren't using any clips of Hardy speaking, and then at the end they had a clip and its was all gravelly mumbling from Hardy.

method acting to the point of not being able to be understood doesn't really work for me.

I love Hardy but for the past 5 years he has really been hit or miss. Usually his hits are just that...big blockbuster efforts. But when he's allowed to be over the top, it's usually in his smaller films. He hasn't touched what he had with Bronson in years. Not even with Locke.

I think when he's tamed, he's better. But when he starts calling the shots and is more alpha than the director, shiat gets messy (Child 44, Legend, Capone).

I have a couple of friends from my 20s that worked on that shoot, so I wanted to like it, but it was a mess. Josh Trank is not a coherent storyteller. It felt like a mashup of Sunset Boulevard and A Beautiful Mind, with just enough violent flashbacks to remind the audience that Al Capone was a crime boss. And Hardy, for some reason, decided on trying to sound like Burgess Meredith's Penguin. It felt like he wasn't being directed at all.

Your last sentence makes a lot of sense if half of Josh Trank's alleged antics from the set of Fantastic Four are true.
