Written by George Costantino on September 26, 2022
The psychological drama Don’t Worry Darling scored the best opening of any new release in more than a month, topping the weekend box office with an estimated $19.2 million. The Olivia Wilde-directed film — starring Wilde, Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, Gemma Chan, KiKi Layne, Nick Kroll and Chris Pine — delivered a total of $30 million worldwide, despite — or perhaps in part because of — the high-profile pre-release squabbling between Wilde and some of her cast.
The Woman King dropped from first to second place in its second week of release, grabbing an estimated $11.1 million, bringing its domestic tally to $35 million.
And the theatrical re-release of Avatar took third with an $10 million. It remains the highest-grossing film of all time worldwide and the fourth highest-grossing domestically.
The horror flick Barbarian dropped to fourth place with an estimated $4.8 million. Its three-week North American total currently stands at $28.4 million.
Rounding out the top five is the Mia Goth horror film Pearl, earning an estimated $6.6 million.
