Box Office: ‘Don’t Worry Darling
In other news, the re-release of "Avatar" is on track to make a huge $9 million or more. Don't Worry, Darling, a high-profile drama from Warner Bros.,
is on track for a strong $21 million opening in the U.S. It has already made more than $9.4 million from 4,113 theatres on Friday, including $3.1 million
from previews on Thursday and special Imax screenings on Monday. Don't Worry Darling, which Olivia Wilde directed, was the most talked-about film at the Venice
Film Festival. This is because it was involved in a number of controversies, including rumours of bad blood between Wilde and Florence Pugh,
who played the lead role. On Friday, Pugh praised the cast and crew in an Instagram post that included a photo of her with Wilde.
The CinemaScore for Don't Worry, Darling was just a B-. Wilde's last movie, Booksmart, got a B+. Word-of-mouth could be hurt by the B-
The same goes for reviews that aren't very enthusiastic. Wilde's second movie as a director has a 35 percent critics' score on Rotten Tomatoes.
