Zac Efron’s We Are Your Friends has 3rd worst opening ever
Zac Efron’s latest film We Are Your Friends has ‘earned’ the title of third worst worldwide opening of all time.
Released over the weekend, the coming-of-age film directed by Catfish: The TV Show co-host Max Joseph opened to an estimated $1.8 million in 2,333 theatres, making it one of the worst wide-release openings in box office history.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, We Are Your Friends has only been exceeded in its failure by two other films – Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure, and Delgo. Don’t worry, we’ve never heard of them either.
We must point out, however, that this is all based on Box Office Mojo data, which only goes as far back as 1982.
Efron plays Cole Carter, an aspiring young DJ hoping to make it in the electronic music scene as a major record producer. We Are Your Friends also stars ‘Blurred Lines’ model Emily Ratajkowski in her first major film role, alongside Shiloh Fernandez, Wes Bentley and Jon Bernthal.
