Zac Efron’s EDM Movie Had One Of The Worst Openings Ever

Finally, the headline we all saw coming when Warner Bros. released the trailer for We Are Your Friends back in May. Max Joseph’s directorial debut opened last Friday to an estimated $1.8 million dollars in 2,333 theaters. If those numbers just look like meaningless data points to you, then you can interpret them this way: We Are Your Friends is the third worst selling wide-release debut ever, according to Box Office Mojo. It lands on the list behind the films Delgo and Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure (wtf?!?!). There are a lot of reasons why this film is a massive failure, and you can read more about them in an extensive essay I wrote about its irrelevance, but what it mostly comes down to is this: No sober person should be subjected to that many bass drops in an hour and a half. It’s headache-inducing. I wouldn’t consider We Are Your Friends to be a terrible movie, but it’s one that you can wait to pirate a month from now, if only to ogle Zac Efron’s physique (see biceps depicted above).
