Not all notable flops are of the big-budget kind.
Billboard reports that Zac Efron’s passion project “We Are Your Friends” has broken a record that it probably did not want to break – it scored the worst opening of all time from a Hollywood studio title released in 2,000 or more theaters.
The film, in which the hard-bodied young actor plays a struggling DJ, opened in thirteenth place with $1.8 million – nabbing a woeful screen average of just $772 for its opening weekend.
Warner Bros. Pictures, which released the movie, only paid about $2 million to distribute the low-budget film so won’t be hurt by its failure. Reviews for the film were weak with only a 46/100 rating on Metacritic.
