Since you’ve had a couple of months to digest the fact that Harry Styles is no longer your boyfriend and, in reality, he’s actually Olivia Wilde’s boyfriend, are you emotionally strong enough to discuss the movie where it all went down? ’Cause that’d be the much anticipated Don’t Worry Darling, a psychological thriller set in a desert town (possibly Palm Springs?) in 1950s California.
Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming movie, including details on the cast (somebody already got fired, yikes), the plot, Olivia’s directing style, and the release date.
We have a trailer!
And this looks…saucy! It’s giving Black Swan vibes and also, like…Made for Love vibes (a very underrated HBO Max show that you should definitely watch). Raise your hand if you forgot Chris Pine was in this movie and also didn’t realize Olivia was acting in it as well as directing.[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/CL_7ND5H1nl/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
I repeat: Olivia Wilde is the director[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/CLSnTVRHPXZ/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
Although Don’t Worry Darling is only Olivia’s second directing project—she made her directorial debut in 2019 with the majorly successful and critically acclaimed teen comedy Booksmart—she’s already established herself as a badass force to be reckoned with behind the camera. Famously, she fired Shia LaBeouf from this project, citing her “no assholes policy,” a way of thinking that she expanded upon in Variety’s Director on Director series:[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/CLUy-huHjLK/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]

Florence announced as much when she posted the above Insta on February 14, writing, “It’s official, it’s a wrap! Yesterday was our final day on the set of Don’t Worry Darling.” Olivia did the same, sharing a sweet behind-the-scenes pic and praising Florence in the caption: “To work with an actor as talented and brave as @FlorencePugh is any director’s dream. I will forever be grateful for you, Flo. It was an honor to be your captain. Can’t wait for the world to see the astonishing work you’ve put into this movie.”[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/CLScxg4n4dO/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
