As a filmmaker working today in Hollywood’s bustling ecosystem Olivia Wilde is one of the most exciting new voices to step behind the camera. Her work on Booksmart was absolutely incredible and now with her work on high suspense thriller Don’t Worry Darling looks to draw on ideas of mania, paranoia and classic Hitchcockian thrills.
Watch the all-new trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Alice (Florence Pugh) and Jack Chambers (Harry Styles) are a young, happy couple living in the seemingly perfect company town of Victory during the 1950s, which is created and paid for by the mysterious company Jack is working for. Curiosity about the nature of her husband’s work on the secret Victory Project begins to consume Alice which leads to cracks in their utopian life as Alice raises tensions within the community during her investigation of the project.
Packed together with breathtaking style and production values, the visual flair of Don’t Worry Darling is the first thing that hits you as soon as you lay eyes on this new trailer, and it’s a film experience unlike anything else out there. But as Wilde draws back the layers that lie behind the glamour, a darker, more dangerous revelation presents itself, and Don’t Worry Darling presents itself as a thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole way through.
Florence Pugh again commands the attention of her audience with a gripping performance as the film’s lead Alice Chambers, a young housewife who is living the 1950s dream in the company of Victory, where everything is seemingly perfect. Until it isn’t. Soon suffering feelings of paranoia, Alice falls into a dangerous, twisted spiral as she begins to challenge the authority of Victory’s leader, Frank (Chris Pine) and his perfect doting wife Shelley (Gemma Chan). It’s then that a new nightmare for Alice begins, and this trailer turns up the heat on our central protagonist as her will to survive takes over and she has to do everything in her power to set herself free.
This second trailer for Don’t Worry Darling is a completely different experience from the initial first trailer and heightens the suspense and intensity that Don’t Worry Darling will deliver to audiences. It’s a frenzied watch, and promises a completely original film that audiences will be spellbound by.
Don’t Worry Darling will arrive in cinemas on October 6.
