Inching closer to a release date is the picture that paired Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles. If the trailer shown at 2022’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas is any indicator, it will cause quite a commotion when it finally does arrive.
Directed by Wilde for the first time since 2019’s Booksmart, Don’t Worry Darling centers on a 1950s American couple living in a utopian village and the consequences that ensue when the wife (Florence Pugh) suspects that the husband (Styles) may be working for a horribly dystopian organization. (It’s always the companies!!) For all we know, the movie is just an excuse for George Bailey-Esque “passionate necking” between Harry Styles and Florence Pugh fans, sending them into a near-psychotic state of screenshotting. Thankfully, fans needn’t wait much longer for more: Don’t Worry Darling is due to theaters on September 23, 2022.
There’s enough action occurring off-screen to keep us busy for the time being. After breaking up with actor Jason Sudeikis, director Olivia Wilde met Styles at work, and the two immediately began an alluring but camera-averse romance. Here is what we do know about the film and what’s going on behind the scenes while we wait for further information.

Don’t Worry Darling release date
Don’t Worry Darling will be released in UK theatres on 23rd September 2022.
The filming of the thriller was halted due to a crew member testing positive for COVID, a common occurrence for productions in the year 2020. Pugh confirmed the news on Instagram and thanked the staff for working in such unpredictability when production resumed and filming for the project officially ended in February despite delays caused by the epidemic.
“Despite the new on-set rules, every single person delivered their A game and it’s the many long lists of names like those above and in the credits at the end of movies that actually get this hard, messy, fun weird job done,” she said.

What is Don’t Worry Darling about?
The thriller is known to take place in the California desert in the 1950s, and in September 2021, IndieWire released the following synopsis:
A 1950s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community begins to worry that his glamorous company may be hiding disturbing secrets.
Of course, the teaser also covered other aspects of the movie, like the secret project that Harry’s character is involved with. In all honesty, I’m excited to see what further surprises Don’t Worry Darling may have in store and am all for any drama that may develop in the utopian community.

What songs will be on the Don’t Worry Darling soundtrack?
Harry Styles, who plays the lead in the movie and is a fan favorite, offered to write a new song for it, according to the film’s director Olivia Wilde, who revealed this to Variety. Olivia allegedly said, “Harry called me and said, ‘What’s the trigger song? Like, what’s the melody?’ I said, ‘I don’t know. I’m going to different writers to write it. Do you have anything in mind?’ And he said, ‘I’ll think about it.”
Harry came up with the concept for the song quickly, either. “Five minutes later, he sent me a demo from his piano, and it was what ended up in the film,” she added. “He called me and said, ‘What about this?’ And I was like, Yeah, that’s it. That’s it. And that’s really insane that you did that in five minutes.” Harry told the outlet that he “wanted something that could be both sweet and creepy, entirely dependent on the content.” The Harry’s House singer continued, “I remember first playing it on the piano, and it had a sort of homemade nursery rhyme feel to it.” For Harry, the song is can be used interchangeably. “Applied to the different moments in the film, I think it takes on a couple of different lives — I hope.”
