WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS had the 4th Worst Opening Weekend Ever

We Are Your Friends

We Are Your Friends opened the worst this year and had one of the worst openings of all time. For a movie that has the title We Are Your Friends, it didn’t bring any to see this film.

Starring Zac Efron, the film about a young DJ trying to make it big in the music industry opened last weekend with a historically bad result, making only about $1.77 million. It was clearly overshadowed by both new and recurring films like No Escape, War Room and Straight Outta Compton, and wasn’t even close to being in the Top 10.

By the way, when I said historically bad, that is not an exaggeration. Because of this result, the movie ended up being the fourth worst wide opening weekend in history (showing in 2000+ theaters). The three films ahead of  We Are Your Friends were Saw 10th Anniversary with $650,000, the 2008 animated film Delgo with $512,000, and Oogieloves In The BIG Baloon Adventure with $444,000.

Some people may assume that We Are Your Friends performed so because the movie as horrible. This may not be case. Although reviews for We Are Your Friends are not necessarily positive, most critics have given the film an average rating of 5/10, including the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, the Boston Globe, and the Chicago Sun-Times.
