Box Office: “Don’t Worry Darling” Numbers Collapse After Weekend, Legs Buckle


Unfortunately, the Harry Styles fans are all in school and doing homework. They are not using the midweek days to go see “Don’t Worry Darling.”

Yesterday’s box office was $2 million, down 20% from Monday. Monday’s numbers were worse, down 59% from Sunday to $1.66 million.

Total now is $23 million. And that isn’t bad since the movie said to have cost between $35 million and $40 million. So profit is in the cards. But not longevity.

Considering all the time spent on gossiping about “Don’t Worry Darling” before it was released, there will be a lot less as its balloon deflates.
