Warner Bros. Pictures officially unveiled the first look of its upcoming psychological horror pic, Don’t Worry Darling, which is scheduled to release exclusively in theaters on Sept. 23, 2022. Feel free to take a gander of the brand new trailer down below, but be warned, it’s pretty eerie stuff.
Clocking in at just under three minutes long, the new footage is equally raunchy as it is disturbing. Boasting top-notch acting talent from the likes of Midsommar’s Florence Pugh, Dunkirk’s Harry Styles, Star Trek‘s Chris Pine, and Crazy Rich Asians’ Gemma Chan, Don’t Worry Darling is bursting at the seams with style and star power.
Helmed by Booksmart’s Olivia Wilde, Don’t Worry Darling appears to be a Truman Show-esque pull-the-rug-from-under-you thriller that sees a happy couple living an idyllic life in a peculiarly perfect smalltown. Things take a turn for the worse when Alice (Pugh) begins asking one too many questions about their eerily perfect existence.
For more information, here’s a general overview courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures:
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 is scheduled to release exclusively in theaters on Sept. 23, 2022.
