Something’s Off in the First Don’t Worry Darling Trailer

This morning brings our first look at Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling, teasing a provocative, and trippy, psychological thriller.

While attendees at CinemaCon last week already had the chance to watch this trailer, now everyone else is getting the first look at Florence Pugh and Harry Styles absolutely tear it up in Don’t Worry Darling.

There’s obviously a lot going on, and the mystery will play a big part of it all, but I’ll be damned if this trailer doesn’t have me all sorts of hyped. It looks ridiculously good, the actors are all great (Chris Pine as a villain, abso-fucking-lutely), and I need September to hurry up.

Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) are lucky to be living in the idealized community of Victory, the experimental company town housing the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families. The 1950’s societal optimism espoused by their CEO, Frank (Pine)—equal parts corporate visionary and motivational life coach—anchors every aspect of daily life in the tight-knit desert utopia.

 

While the husbands spend every day inside the Victory Project Headquarters, working on the “development of progressive materials,” their wives—including Frank’s elegant partner, Shelley (Chan)—get to spend their time enjoying the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their community. Life is perfect, with every resident’s needs met by the company. All they ask in return is discretion and unquestioning commitment to the Victory cause.

 

But when cracks in their idyllic life begin to appear, exposing flashes of something much more sinister lurking beneath the attractive façade, Alice can’t help questioning exactly what they’re doing in Victory, and why. Just how much is Alice willing to lose to expose what’s really going on in this paradise?

Don’t Worry Darling hits theaters on September 23, 2022.
