Box Office Bonanza: Harry Styles Fans Turn Out En Masse for “Don’t Worry” Previews Despite Negative Reviews


There are still some worries, but last night Harry Styles fans turned out for his big movie.

Preview showings produced $3.1 million at the box office, a lot more than anyone could have predicted considering the reviews. (That’s a 36% on Rotten Tomatoes.)

But Styles fans bought a lot of tickets. The movie is looking at a possible $20 million weekend if the Style-istics keep coming back to see their pop star idol bury his head under Florence Pugh’s dress a couple of times.

Meantime, “The Woman King” fell by another 10%.
