We Are Your Friends among the top 10 worst wide-release openings in box office history

Posted on

We Are Your Friends opened this weekend to an estimated $1.8 million in 2,333 theaters, making it one of the worst wide-release openings in box office history.

According to data from Box Office Mojo, the Zac Efron DJ movie officially clocks in as the third worst wide-release debut ever, just behind Delgo and Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure. (Box Office Mojo’s data only goes back to 1982, and we excluded rereleases. We also only included films that opened in more than 2,000 theaters.)

The official list of the worst wide openings is an eclectic mix of animated movies, comedies, and thrillers, and it includes everything from All Dogs Go To Heaven 2 to The Adventures of Pluto Nash. We Are Your Friends marks Wes Bentley’s second appearance on the list, as he also starred in the trapped-in-a-parking-garage horror flick P2.

Here are the top 10 worst wide-release movie debuts ever:
