Pugh and Harry Styles lead an all-star cast in a topsy-turvy 1950s America.
Olivia Wilde and Warner Bros. have released our first proper look at the actor-turned-director's upcoming new film in the 'Don't Worry Darling' trailer. And straight away, we're seeing similarities between this and Florence Pugh's other infamous horror flick 'Midsommar' - which might not exactly be music to some people's ears.
'Don't Worry Darling' sees Pugh lead the cast as the "perfect" housewife in the 1950s, Alice, to her husband Jack (Styles), who works away on the secretly named "Victory Project" each day. The community's CEO Frank (Chris Pine) is the powerhouse behind this suburban utopia in the middle of the desert, but it seems he and all of the men in the area are hiding something...
While the husbands spend every day inside the Victory Project Headquarters, working on the "development of progressive materials", their wives lounge around spending their time enjoying the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their community - and preparing themselves for the return of their husbands after their long day in the office.
Life is going swimmingly for everyone until Alice notices that this idyllic life she's been living is not all that it seems, and begins to question Frank and his "Victory Project".
As you can see in the 'Don't Worry Darling' trailer below, she's about to get embark on a rather twisted tale which turns her perfect community on its head: "Everyone is acting like I’m crazy, and I’m not crazy."
Promising to be "an audacious, twisted and visually stunning psychological thriller", it bears some resemblance to Ari Aster's 'Midsommar', which split audiences in the cinema. It's mostly down to Florence Pugh once again playing a role where she realises she's in some sort of living hell, so hopefully, this will be the only similarity both films share.
Joining Pugh, Styles and Pine are Gemma Chan ('Crazy Rich Asians'), KiKi Layne ('The Old Guard' Nick Kroll ('How It Ends'), Sydney Chandler ('Pistol'), Kate Berlant ('Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood'), Asif Ali ('WandaVision'), Douglas Smith ('Big Little Lies'), Timothy Simons ('Veep') and Ari’el Stachel (upcoming 'Respect the Jux').
Director Olivia Wilde will also star in her twisted feature in a supportive role. She premiered the trailer last week at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, where she was also bizarrely served custody papers in relation to her children shared with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis.
Here's the 'Don't Worry Darling' trailer.
'Don't Worry Darling' will be in cinemas on September 23.
