Zac Efron's 'We Are Your Friends' Has One Of The Worst Openings Of All Time

Cavan Sieczkowski | August 31, 2015 | Entertainment
Zac Efron's "We Are Your Friends" got no love from friends, or pretty much anyone else, this weekend at the box office.  "We Are Your Friends" debuted at just $1.8 million with a wide-release in 2,333 theaters. It now sits at No. 4 on Box Office Mojo's worst wide openings of all time (based on the site's data collection from 1982 onward). The only films with openings more dismal include: "Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure" ($443,901); "Delgo" ($511,920); and "Saw 10th Anniversary" ($650,051).  The film, about an aspiring DJ and co-starring supermodel Emily Ratajkowski, was apparently a personal one for Efron.  "This was a passion project for Zac Efron, and we believe in him," Warner Bros. executive VP for domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein told The Hollywood Reporter. "Yes, the result was disappointing, but this was a small film." Warner Bros. paid just $2 million to distribute the film in North America, but tracking suggested the film would open around $8 million, CNN reported.  YourEDM.com's Kspence had some ideas about why the film performed so poorly:  Let’s start with the plot: a washed up DJ and his girlfriend work with a slightly clueless DJ and his bronies to try and make it big. It completely romanticizes the idea of EDM, leaving out the real intricacies and killing its credibility. Bonus negative points for dumbing down Emily Ratajkowski‘s role to generic female lead and having no other females represented in the film. Lack of support from anyone in the dance music industry didn’t help either." "We Are Your Friends" has a 43 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an average one of 5/10. Critics called it a "clichéd coming-of-age story as programmed as the soundtrack's beats."    Also on HuffPost:  For a constant stream of entertainment news and discussion, follow HuffPost Entertainment on

Hulk Hogan Wants Forgiveness For Racist Tirade

Cavan Sieczkowski | August 31, 2015 | Entertainment
Hulk Hogan broke down in tears during a recent interview, asking for forgiveness for his racist tirade.  "I was at the lowest point of my life, to the point where I wanted to kill myself," he said during an interview with "Good Morning America," referencing the time period when the secret recording was made. On the 2006 recording, he can be heard using the N-word when discussing daughter Brooke Hogan's then-boyfriend with Heather Clem, the wife of Hogan's former friend, and radio host Bubba the Love Sponge Clem. "No, I'm not a racist. I never should have said what I said. I was wrong; I'm embarrassed by it, but people need to realize that you inherit things from your environment," he said. "Where I grew up was South Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income, and all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word. The word was just thrown around like it was nothing." He said it's "fair" to say he inherited a racial bias, and asked for forgiveness from his fans.  The comments were discovered on the same tape sex tape that Gawker Media posted in 2012. The National Enquirer exposed the racial rant in July and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) cut ties with the wrestler shortly after.  The 62-year-old faced a slew of backlash, but received support from his daughter, who spoke out in defense of her father by saying: "My dad's best friends with Mr. T, he's best friends with Dennis Rodman. He's not racist." Hogan is suing Gawker Media for $100 million for releasing the Clem sex tape. They are set to go to trial in March 2016.    Also on HuffPost:  For a constant stream of entertainment news and discussion, follow HuffPost Entertainment on
