Dont Worry Darling, Olivia Wilde, Harry Styles Face The Worlds Press Live Now In Venice

09/05/2022

Refresh for latest…: Ever since Olivia Wilde first introduced her sophomore directorial effort, Warner Bros/New Line’s Don’t Worry Darling, at CinemaCon last April, followed by a steamy trailer a few days later, anticipation surrounding the film has escalated — for various reasons. It’s now at a fever pitch here in Venice where the movie will world premiere this evening.

Ahead of that, Wilde and stars Harry Styles, Chris Pine and Gemma Chan are due any minute at the film’s press conference. Lead Florence Pugh, however, will not attend.

Rarely has a press conference here in Venice been so anticipated — the festival on Sunday alerted badge holders about a “rush line” for last-minute admission should seats remain available.

There has been rampant speculation of potential fireworks at the press conference should director/co-writer and co-star Wilde be asked to clarify comments she made about the movie, the circumstances of Shia La Beouf’s withdrawal, and the rumors that Pugh wasn’t happy when Wilde and La Beouf’s replacement, Styles, reportedly began dating after they met on the set, and might have been distracted.

As Deadline reported on Sunday, Pugh won’t be at the press conference because her flight from the Budapest set of Dune 2 doesn’t land until later in the afternoon. She will walk the red carpet, do the photo call, and watch the movie which screens at 7pm local time. She will then jump right back on a plane to get back to work Tuesday morning.

Attention surrounding Don’t Worry Darling has only increased after a candid and provocative cover story on Wilde by our sibling publication Variety, followed by La Beouf’s social media refutation of Wilde’s assertion she fired him.

Wilde certainly may face some tough questions at the impending press conference, so check back for updates as we follow the proceedings.

Don’t Worry Darling follows Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) who seem lucky to be living in the idealized community of Victory, an 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 finds herself questioning exactly what they’re doing in Victory, and why.

The film opens domestically on September 23.
