Olivia Wilde is ramping up excitement for her already highly anticipated horror drama, Don't Worry Darling. Wilde shared the first glimpse of the film on her Instagram on Monday and also revealed the film will be released only in theaters on Sept. 23, 2022.
Don't Worry Darling is the second film 37-year-old Wilde has directed after her critically acclaimed 2019 movie, Booksmart. It centers around a 1950s housewife, Alice (Florence Pugh), living with her husband, Jack (Harry Styles), in a utopian experimental community. However, she begins to worry that his glamorous company may be hiding disturbing secrets. In the eerie teaser, Pugh and Styles share an intense kiss, and a terrifying shot of a woman's face covered in plastic wrap ends the short glimpse into the film.
"They’re pretty low-key and have enjoyed being somewhat out of the public eye," the source said, adding that Wilde felt she'd gotten even closer to Styles after having spent time in his home country, England.
"Harry Styles is an absolute delight," he said. "He's one of the most professional people I've ever met. Couldn't be kinder, more gracious, I mean, really, I was stunned by this kid. He's off-the-charts cool."
"The aesthetic of the movie is beautiful," he also told ET. "The story is so compelling and so fun and so dark and twisted. "Shooting was wonderful. Olivia is very clear about what she wants."
