Everything We Know About Don’t Worry Darling | Screen Rant

Published

on

Olivia Wilde’s highly-anticipated film Don’t Worry Darling is finally gaining some traction, and the footage looks stunning. Don’t Worry Darling has been steadily filming since its announcement in August 2019, after New Line Cinema won an intense bidding war against 18 other studios. Now, after a protracted gestation period, the movie looks ready to see the light of day.

Don’t Worry Darling will be Wilde’s second film as director following her debut with the coming-of-age comedy Booksmart (2019). The film did exceptionally well, garnering $25 million at the box office and receiving a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, while Wilde undoubtedly found success with Booksmart’s comedic style, Don’t Worry Darling promises to be a very different project tonally, drawing on a number of challenging themes.

Official Don’t Worry Darling footage shows the beauty and creep factor of Olivia Wilde’s first journey into the horror/thriller genre. Wilde’s high school comedy Booksmart is a hard act to follow, so expectation around Don’t Worry Darling is high. Here is everything that’s known about Don’t Worry Darling so far.

Don’t Worry Darling will hit theaters on September 23rd, 2022Don’t Worry Darling finally wrapped up production in February 2021, after coming to a standstill twice due to different crew members testing positive for COVID-19. Aside from the latest trailer being released, a short teaser on Olivia Wilde’s Instagram showcases a release date for the fall. Wilde’s teaser was posted on September 13th, 2021, and an official release date for Don’t Worry Darling is also in her bio.

Don’t Worry Darling has a star-studded cast. Footage from the movie and the short teaser on Wilde’s Instagram post shows Florence Pugh (Midsommar, Black Widow) in a 50s-style hairdo and outfit, portraying Alice as a housewife. Playing her husband is singer and actor Harry Styles. With Styles and Pugh being the film’s main stars, Don’t Worry Darling is destined for a big opening weekend.

Aside from Styles and Pugh, also starring in Don’t Worry Darling is Olivia Wilde herself, as well as Gemma Chan (Crazy Rich Asians), Kiki Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk), Douglas Smith (The Alienist), Nick Kroll (Big Mouth), Asif Ali (Goatface), and Chris Pine (Wonder Woman 1984) as a cult leader.

Don’t Worry Darling tells the story of a woman trapped in a cultish neighborhood. In the movie, Florence Pugh’s Alice lives in a Stepford-Wives-esque idyllic community with her husband Jack, played by none other than Harry Styles. She sinks into her daily life and routine, making sure that her husband is well taken care of. The rest of the women do the same, and the humdrum becomes normal. Under the surface, something sinister is brewing, and Alice can sense it. The 1950s housewife begins to believe that their experimental community, The Victory Project, is hiding something — along with the men these women are married to.

Alice begins to question The Victory Project, at the center of which sits Chris Pine’s sinister Frank. Needless to say, things get worse for Alice the longer she keeps digging. Above all else, the husbands ask their wives for their discretion. And in Don’t Worry Darling, Alice refuses to give in. Don’t Worry Darling is set to be a psychological thriller for the ages, and under Olivia Wilde’s direction, the movie should be a twisting tale that puts cults, feminism, and gender roles under a microscope.
