Star Zac Efron looks to build on his break-out performance in last summer's Neighbors with We Are Your Friends, a film that could connect with fickle teen crowds. This week BoxOffice takes a closer look at the film's commercial prospects.

We Are Your Friends
(Warner Bros.)

PROS:

- After stumbling a bit, Efron's drawing power is definitely back following the success of Neighbors
- Reactions to the first trailer are encouraging
- Co-star Emily Ratajkowski is poised to break out.

CONS:

- The end of August can be a very slow time at the box office.
- Teens are more unreliable than they ever have been.
