‘It’s not a re-release…it’s a RE-RE-RE-release’: Fans Defend Don’t Worry Darling after James Cameron’s Avatar Re-release Earned More Than Olivia Wilde Movie


13 years after its first debut, Avatar has returned to the top of the global box office. Avatar returned to theatres this weekend, with Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling, in preparation for the upcoming sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water, adding $30.5 million to its lifetime box office total, with $10 million coming from North America and $20.5 million coming from other countries. A comparison of the box office earnings of Don’t Worry Darling‘s to a re-release of a James Cameron film says it all.

Don’t worry Darling has had its issues that are unrelated to WB’s, but it did earn an amazing $3.1 million on its first day. However, the re-release of James Cameron’s groundbreaking CGI film Avatar has earned more than Olivia Wilde’s psychological thriller, which speaks volumes for WB.

The drama surrounding the film’s director, as well as its leading performers Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, and the now-fired Shia LaBeouf, has hampered the release of Olivia Wilde’s film.
