Zac Efron’s EDM Movie ‘We Are Your Friends’ Tanks With Worst Ever Opening Of $1.8 Million
Did you go out and see EDM movie We Are Your Friends, starring Zac Efron? The numbers say, you did not. In fact, WAYF suffered the worst ever opening of all time for a Hollywood studio movie going out to 2,000 theaters or more.
It hit 2,333 theaters and made only $1.8 million, compared to a projected $8 million opening weekend. Now, this didn’t account for inflation but… this is bad, real bad, Michael Jackson. Even the co-starring Emily Ratajkowski couldn’t save the film.
“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.”
