Guadagnino’s steamy sports drama has been met with much praise from critics and fans alike, making it a likely contender come awards season. Variety’s Peter Debruge deemed “Challengers” a “critic’s pick,” calling the film “the steamiest (and funniest) sports-centric love triangle since ‘Bull Durham.'” The film currently sits at 89% on Rotten Tomatoes with a B+ CinemaScore.

“Challengers” opened with a $15 million first-place finish at the domestic box office, and has since soared to upwards of $40 million. But with a price tag of $55 million, the film still has a ways to go to recoup its production budget.

Zendaya, who recently posed on the cover of Variety with her “Challengers” co-stars, has had a monumental 2024, emerging as one of Hollywood’s hottest young talents. In March, she starred as Chani in “Dune: Part 2,” which is the highest-grossing film of 2024 at over $700 million worldwide. Another recorded-breaking performance from Zendaya was as MJ in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which was released in 2021 and became the seventh highest-grossing movie of all time.

Rent/purchase “Challengers” on Prime Video or Apple TV+ starting today.
