Olivia Wilde’s ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ was the most buzzing film of the month due to the off-screen controversy ahead of its release, but after its release, the buzziest film became a joke for critics and the audience, especially Harry’s dialogue delivery. No doubt critics’ reviews of ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ are hard-up, but thanks to Pugh and the production design itself, who made the film a film. But despite reviews not in favor, the psychological thriller has performed well at the box office, but are these successful numbers too?
Is Don’t Worry Darling Hit Or Flop?
As per reports, Olivia Wilde’s direction ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ was released in the USA on September 23, 2022, in over 4100 theaters, collecting $9.4 million on its opening day (including $3.1 million from previews and screenings) and $19.35 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office. Leaving opening, the so far box office of the film is currently at $86.68 million globally, including $45.28 million domestic and $41.40 million overseas.
With high-buzz, well-known stars, and a respected production, the $19 million opening is not impressive in any way, and when Warner Bros Pictures spent quite a double on the P&A for a $35 production. If it is estimated, then the film will have to earn at least $100 million, and the overseas business of the film will be very important, but still, for now, the film is not in such a condition that it can earn $100 million, and don’t know why, but ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ is also a financial failure for Warner Bros Pictures, after ‘DC League of Super-Pets’.
As per reports, before its release, WBP was expecting an ‘Elvis’ like performance from ‘Don’t Worry Darling’, and this is the reason production had put a lot of effort into the film. But now, after getting bad reviews, the hopes have been dashed again. The just hope to meet the cost back.
Talking about the exact critical response, then, ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ received a 6.2/10* IMDb rating based on 65k+ votes, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 39/100% based on 327 critical reviews.
