In an unexpected turn of events, the romantic comedy genre has once again demonstrated its enduring popularity at the box office, with “Anyone But You” reaching a historic milestone.

The updated adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” starring Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney, debuted to modest domestic earnings but has since developed into a global hit, attracting audiences around the world with its irresistible charm and wit.

Despite starting at No. 4 with a domestic weekend total of $6 million, “Anyone But You” gradually gained traction, surprising predictions and cementing its place as a sleeper smash during the winter season. As the picture completes its extraordinary ninth weekend in theaters, it has surpassed all expectations, bringing its global total to an astonishing $200 million.

According to Deadline, the film’s astounding success has positioned it as one of the top performers in 2023, joining an elite group of only 38 releases to accomplish such a significant milestone. Surpassing the box office smash “The Marvels,” “Anyone But You” has emerged as a beacon of triumph for the romantic comedy genre, becoming the first rom-com since “Crazy Rich Asians” in 2018 to reach the $200 million mark worldwide.

The plot, which revolves around a couple who reluctantly agree to feign a relationship during a destination wedding, has captivated audiences with an alluring blend of humor, heart, and unmistakable chemistry between Powell and Sweeney. Directorial expertise, combined with a brilliant ensemble cast and a novel narrative take on a traditional tale, has lifted “Anyone But You” to unparalleled heights, reigniting interest in romantic comedies on the big screen.

The achievement not only demonstrates the romantic comedy genre’s lasting popularity but also reflects a comeback in audience desire for heartfelt storytelling in an era dominated by big-budget blockbusters and franchise pictures. With its incredible journey from underdog to global sensation, “Anyone But You” exemplifies the power of real storytelling as well as the universal pull of love and humor.
