The official Don't Worry Darling trailer has hit and the social media freak-out is reaching astronomically thirsty heights.
First, some context: Don't Worry Darling is a psychological thriller starring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh as a 1950s couple living in a "utopian experimental community." Pugh's unhappy housewife, Alice, begins to worry that her husband's "glamorous company may be hiding disturbing secrets."
The movie has garnered buzz not only for its starry, stylish leads but also for its director, Olivia Wilde, last seen dealing with her very own #Envelopegate during a CinemaCon presentation for the film last week.
On Monday, May 2nd, Wilde offered fans a lengthy look at the upcoming movie with the official trailer posted on her social media handles—and it caused quite the commotion online. Let's see what everyone's talking bout, shall we?

In the Don't Worry Darling trailer, we can see Pugh lounging poolside with a perfectly 50s coif, Chris Pine partying in a white tuxedo, and plenty of tension throughout—including of the sexual sort.
The trailer includes plenty of peeks at Styles and Pugh locked in a steamy, open-mouthed makeout session, and another featuring the "As It Was" singer, ahem, attending to the Little Women actress atop a dining table. As one fan so succinctly put it on social media, "I need a cigarette after the new don’t worry darling trailer." Light one up for us, too!
Whether clothes come off or not remains to be seen, but those steamy glimpses alone have received heaps of social media attention. Needless to say, fans are excited for this one:

Who is in the 'Don't Worry Darling' cast?
Joining Florence Pugh, Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde in the cast will be supporting actors Chris Pine, Genna Chan, KiKi Layne and Nick Kroll.
This is the latest in a string of acting projects for the former One Direction bandmate, who previously starred in 2017's Dunkirk and will next be seen opposite The Crown star Emma Corrin in the upcoming movie The Policeman.
Styles replaced Shia LaBeouf as one of the leads in Don't Worry Darling after LaBeouf was fired by Wilde for "poor behavior and (clashing) with the cast and crew," reported Variety (opens in new tab). Wilde, who also directed Booksmart in 2019, discussed in Variety's "Director on Director" series (opens in new tab) that she's adopted a "no asshole policy" on her sets.
How long have Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles been dating?
It's no secret that the director is famously dating the film's leading man. After meeting onset for Don't Worry Darling, Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde went public with their romance back in January 2021 after turning up hand-in-hand at his agent Jeff Azoff’s wedding.
Word of the budding relationship came soon after news hit that Wilde was splitting from her longtime partner and father of her two children, Ted Lasso actor Jason Sudeikis.
