The internet was blessed with the Don’t Worry Darling trailer over the bank holiday, and everyone has lost the plot. A psychological thriller starring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh as husband and wife – get your popcorn deluxe meal preordered now.
Olivia Wilde is producing, directing, and co-starring in Don’t Worry Darling, joining forces once again with screenplay writer Katie Silberman, who also co-wrote the critically acclaimed Booksmart, Wilde’s directorial feature debut. This is Wilde’s second feature film, which she describes as “a love letter to movies that push the boundaries of imagination.”
The trailer centres Pugh’s character, Alice, who becomes increasingly suspicious of her husband Jack and his job. Specifics of the plot are still strictly hush-hush, but we do know that it is “set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert”. Expect vintage glamour, convertible cars, stunning cinematography and disturbing secrets. And last but not least, we can't forget that steamy bedroom scene that everyone is obsessing over.
Wilde and Styles started their romantic journey off-screen during filming, with Wilde admitting that she “did a little victory dance when we heard that we officially had Harry in the film, because we knew that he has a real appreciation for fashion and style”. How sweet is that?
Alongside Styles and Pugh is an impressive, star studded cast that is leaving the world eagerly anticipating the release, including; Star Trek’s Chris Pine, Eternal’s Gemma Chan, Big Mouth’s Nick Kroll, Coming 2 America’s KiKi Layne and burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese.
Don’t Worry Darling is set to to hit UK cinemas on September 23. Until then, here is our round up of the very best reactions online.
