The official teaser trailer for Harry Styles' new movie, Don't Worry Darling, has hit and the social media freak-out is reaching astronomical heights. We're talking "people filming entire YouTube reactions to the 10-second clip" levels of fanfare.

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. On Monday, September 13, Wilde offered fans a sneak peek of the upcoming movie with a teaser trailer posted on her social media handles—and it caused quite the commotion online. Let's see what everyone's talking bout, shall we? 



Watch the teaser for Harry Styles' new movie, Don't Worry Darling: 

In the super-short 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 teaser includes a blink-and-you-missed-it scene of Styles and Pugh locked in a steamy, open-mouthed makeout session, leading viewers to believe that the world will soon be on the receiving end of an unexpected gift: Harry Styles' first sex scene.

Whether clothes come off or not remains to be seen, but the smooch alone received heaps of social media attention. Among the many all-capped reactions were "SCREAMING CRYING THROWING UP," "YOU DID NOT JUST DROP THAT OUT OF NOWHERE OLIVIA BUT THANK YOU WTF," and—upon seeing the release date of September 23, 2022—"YOURE GOING TO MAKE US WAIT FOR ONE YEAR????!'!!'!'

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. Wilde, who also directed Booksmart in 2019, discussed in Variety's "Director on Director" series 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.

Most recently, 27-year-old Styles and 37-year-old Wilde were spotted on vacation together in Italy back in July, and the actor-director was seen supporting the musician at the opening night of his Love on Tour concert in Las Vegas in September.
