Florence Pugh’s Psychological Mystery “Don’t Worry Darling” Teases A Mind-Bending Ride In First Trailer

Everyone is acting like I’m crazy, and I’m not crazy.

New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. have released the trailer for their upcoming release, Don’t Worry Darling – which you can check out below.

The film, described as “an audacious, twisted and visually stunning psychological thriller”, stars Florence Pugh and Harry Styles.

This first look at the film immediately grabs your attention and gives off strong Last Night in Soho meets Jordan Peele vibes as we are transported back into a trippy 1950s medley of eerie mystery, raunchy exploits and stunning cinematography.

The full synopsis reads:

“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 1950s 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?”

Wilde directs from a screenplay penned by her Booksmart writer Katie Silberman, based on a story by Carey Van Dyke & Shane Van Dyke.
