Subject: Zac Efron film bombs

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/01/15 at 7:29 am

Oh dear. It's been a rocky road since the halcyon days of High School Musical.

Zac Efron's dance movie We Are Your Friends has bombed at the US and Canada box office, with one of the worst opening weekends on record.

The Warner Bros film, which was shown in 2,333 cinemas, had box office takings of $1.8 million (£1.1 million) - or just $758 (£493) per screen.

It is the third worst opening of all time for a new film opening in 2,000 or more theatres, said Box Office Mojo. Ouch.

(The biggest flop on that list, by the way, was The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure. Me neither.)
