The outing came just weeks after her second directorial effort, Don’t Worry Darling, hit theaters after various controversies. 

The film opened well, earning $19.3 million and debuting atop the box office for the weekend of September 23-25.

The film has dropped significantly though – 64.6% to be exact – in its second weekend, earning just $6.8 million, bringing its total to $32.3 million from a reported $35 million budget.

The film follows a young couple (Florence Pugh and Harry Styles) who move into a seemingly-idyllic town run by the husband’s company.

Their seemingly-perfect world starts to crumble as the wife starts to delve deeper into the secrets swirling around the town.

Wilde directs and also stars in the film alongside Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, Nick Kroll and KiKi Layne.

Wilde is currently prepping her next directorial effort, Perfect, based on the true story of Kerri Strug and her iconic vault at the 1996 Olympics.

Despite hurting her ankle on a previous vault attempt, she stuck the landing on her second run and secured a gold medal for the United States in the team competition, the first time the U.S. had ever won after decades of Russian dominance.

Thomasin McKenzie is attached to star as Strug with Mckenna Grace attached to play Strug’s teammate Dominique Moceanu.
