Zac Efron’s ‘We Are Your Friends’ Has the Worst Opening in History


‘We Are Your Friends’ has the worst opening for a Hollywood studio movie opening in 2,000 or more theaters.

Zac Efron’s electronic dance music We Are Your Friends debuted to a pathetic $1.8 million from over 2,000 movie theaters making it the worst opening of all time for a new major studio. Directed by Catfish: The TV Series’ Max Joseph, We Are Your Friends was placed number 14 on the Box Office charts.

We Are Your Friends stars Zac Efron as a young DJ trying to break into the EDM music industry and become a music producer. Wes Bentley and Emily Ratajkowski also star in the film, which earned middling reviews and a C+ CinemaScore from audiences. Analysts had suggested We Are Your Friends would open to at least $8 million.

This was a passion project for Zac Efron, and we believe in him,” said Warners exec VP for domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein. “Yes, the result was disappointing, but this was a small film.”

Meanwhile, Straight Outta Compton made a domestic total of $134.1 million. Overseas, Straight Outta Compton opened to No. 1 in the U.K. and Germany with $3.9 million and $2.2 million, respectively.

Zac Efron is currently filming the sequel to Neighborsin Atlanta, Georgia alongside Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. Recently, casting directors were looking for frat guys and sorority girls in Atlanta, Georgia.
