Olivia Wilde Is 'Shook' After Learning Her Movie Booksmart Is Back in Theaters: 'This Is So Cool!'
From Taylor Swift to Ryan Reynolds, Hollywood's A-listers — and Olivia Wilde's fans — have raved about her directorial debut
Fans have another chance to catch Booksmart in theaters!
“AHHH this is so cool! Enough of you asked for @Booksmart to come back and they DID IT! I’m shook,” Wilde, 35, tweeted about her feature directorial debut.
Despite receiving rave reviews, the project made less than $10 million in its opening weekend after competing with Disney’s Aladdin, which had raked in $233 million worldwide and $112 million at the U.S. box office by late May.
“Anyone out there saving @Booksmart for another day, consider making that day TODAY,” she tweeted. “We are getting creamed by the big dogs out there and need your support. Don’t give studios an excuse not to green-light movies made by and about women”
Now, the film is getting a second chance, allowing movie lovers to watch the film once again on the big screen for a discounted $5 price.
Swift, 29, reposted a video of actress Diana Silvers, who stars in the film, on her Instagram Story, writing, “JUST BOUGHT TICKETS!! Guys go see Booksmart cause in this house we support @oliviawilde.”
Reynolds, 42, raved about the film, tweeting, “BOOKSMART. Don’t walk, RUN to see this. Today and all summer. Holy s—.”
The celebrity endorsements only echoed the film’s raving reviews.
Peter Debruge of Variety said, “Not since Superbad has a high school comedy so perfectly nailed how exhilarating it feels to act out at that age, capturing the thrill of making a series of potentially irreversible mistakes with the person who’s always been there for you.”
“#Booksmart is a coming of age, like…masterpiece? @BeanieFeldstein is a goddamn STAR. This movie just added years to my life,” Kevin Fallon from the Daily Beast tweeted after watching the film.
