Zac Efron isn’t exactly known for making classic films, let’s just put that out there.
His latest monstrosity is an EDM drama called ‘We Are Your Friends’ (yes – an EDM drama), in which Efron plays a young DJ trying to break into the EDM scene and become a music producer. It also stars Wes Bentley and Emily Ratajowski.
To be fair, it did look completely shit from the trailer:
Turns out it had one of the worst openings of all time for a new major studio offering to 2,000+ cinemas, debuting to $1.8 million from 2,333 locations (they’d predicted at least $8 million).
Warbers exec Jeff Goldstein said:
This was a passion project for Zac Efron, and we believe in him. Yes, the result was disappointing, but this was a small film.
