He tweeted Monday: “Well if anything restored my faith in music, apparently that zac efron trying to be a DJ movie bombed out this wknd.” He continued, writing about the film’s major financial losses, and praising that other little music movie that’s dominating the box office: Straight Outta Compton:




We Are Your Friends made an estimated $1.8 million on its opening weekend in 2,333 theaters, making it the third-worst wide release opening in box office history (behind Delgo and Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure).
