Zac Efron’s Made An ‘EDM Drama’ And It’s Received One Of The Worst Box Office Openings Of All Time

You can tell how utterly shite it is just by watching the trailer.

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.
