When the Don't Worry Darling trailer hit social media, the freak-out from fans without doubt reached astronomically thirsty heights. So if you're keen to know what the film is all about now that it's out, be sure to catch the very intriguing trailer first!

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." Alice, an unhappy housewife played by Pugh, 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 for its very dramatic behind-the-scenes goss too (we've all heard about the Harry Styles and Chris Pine spitting drama by now)

While the film is now officially out in cinemas in both the US and the UK, if you want to get a flavour of the film before heading to see, take a look at the rather dramatic trailer. It dropped on Monday, May 2nd, when the film's director Olivia Wilde offered fans a lengthy look at the movie with the official trailer posted on her social media handles. Let's see what everyone's talking about, 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 (including sexual tension) throughout.

The trailer includes plenty of peeks at Styles and Pugh locked in a steamy makeout session, and another featuring the IRL 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."

You'll have to watch the actual film to see whether clothes come off or not, but those steamy glimpses alone received heaps of social media attention. Needless to say, fans were *very* excited:

Who is in the 'Don't Worry Darling' cast? 

Joining Florence Pugh, Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde in the cast of the film are supporting actors Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, KiKi Layne and Nick Kroll.

This is the latest in a string of acting projects for the former One Direction bandmate Styles, who previously starred in 2017's Dunkirk, and will next be seen opposite The Crown star Emma Corrin in the upcoming movie The Policeman

Just one part of the drama surrounding the film, Styles actually 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.
