Don’t Worry Darling: Florence Pugh and Harry Styles’ psychological thriller just got its first teaser trailer

Posted by and for Life

Olivia Wilde has shared the first teaser trailer for her new film, Don’t Worry Darling, which stars Florence Pugh and Harry Styles. Here’s everything we know about the movie that everybody is going to be talking about.

Olivia Wilde has released the first teaser for Don’t Worry Darling, her new psychological thriller film starring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh.

The short clip – which was released yesterday – also reveals that the film will be released in US cinemas on 23 September 2022 (the film is yet to get a UK release date). And while that means we’ve all got a while to wait until we learn more about the mysterious new movie, the teaser has left us pretty excited.

As well as showing Pugh and Styles’ characters making out, the trailer also captures Pugh – who plays a housewife whose “reality begins to crack” – in a series of confusing creepy scenarios, including ripping what looks like plastic wrapping away from her face. Oh, and to top it all off, apparently that singing in the background is from Pugh, too.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Wilde has leaked details from the film on her social media. In February this year, she shared a series of behind-the-scenes photographs from the Don’t Worry Darling set – including a black-and-white shot of Harry Styles in a 1950s-style car. 

Commenting on his approach to playing the supporting male role, Wilde writes: “It is harrrrrd to find actors who recognise why it might be worth it to allow for a woman to hold the spotlight. Enter: @harrystyles.” 

She has also shared a photograph of Florence Pugh, who takes the lead in the movie, writing alongside it: “Can’t wait for the world to see the astonishing work you’ve put into this movie. Tom Cruise run + Meryl skills = THE FLO.”

While we still know very little about the project, it’s safe to say Don’t Worry Darling is going to be a pretty big deal when it hits cinemas next year – and we can’t wait to hear more about the film as its release date approaches.

The Hollywood Reporter describes the setting as “an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert”. It also says the story “centres on a housewife who uncovers a disturbing truth about her seemingly perfect life”.
