The first trailer has finally dropped for the upcoming period thriller “Don’t Worry Darling”. The movie has people interested for a number of reasons. It’s the sophomore directing effort for Olivia Wilde whose first film “Booksmart” was a bland copy-and-paste teen comedy that somehow managed much acclaim. But what has me most excited is the compelling cast that features Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Gemma Chan, Chris Pine, KiKi Layne, Nick Kroll, and Wilde herself.
The story surrounds a 1950s housewife (Pugh) who discovers that the seemingly idyllic neighborhood and the husband she adores (Styles) are hiding a deep dark secret. The trailer offers plenty of cool images and a keen sense of style. At the same time it looks a bit scattered, as if it’s trying to be a lot of things all at once. How will it turn out? We’ll see in a few months.
“Don’t Worry Darling” hits theaters September 23rd. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
