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.
The movie, about a 23-year-old wannabe DJ, has had mixed reviews.
In a four-star write-up, Time Out’s David Ehrlich said the film “capture[s] the weightless euphoria of getting lost in the perfect song”.
