The newly-released motion poster for Don’t Worry Darling showcases an ominous moving image synched to a moody soundtrack. The image depicts a beautiful mountainside neighborhood that looks picture-perfect. Alice Chambers (Pugh) seems to be kissing her husband Jack (Styles) goodbye as he gets ready to pull out of their driveway in his fancy car. Above them is a plane that is slowly crashing down. However, the blue sky above them seems to be flowing, like the sky is actually a body of water. As the 12-second-long motion poster continues on, the image glitches out and flips upside down briefly before going right back to normal. The motion poster is accompanied by a soft and eerie ballad that sounds like it may be sung by leading actress Pugh.
Wilde and Silberman also serve as producers on Don’t Worry Darling, alongside Miri Yoon and Roy Lee. Wilde, who is an actress known for appearing in the films Tron: Legacy and Cowboys & Aliens, has been bitten by the directing bug after helming the critically acclaimed 2019 comedy film Booksmart. Don’t Worry Darling is the second time Wilde and Silberman have worked together after collaborating on Booksmart.
Don’t Worry Darling is currently scheduled to be released theatrically on September 23. Check out the official motion poster for the film below:
Here’s the official synopsis of Don’t Worry Darling:
“Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) are lucky to be living in the idealized community of Victory, the experimental company town housing the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families. The 1950’s 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 can’t help questioning exactly what they’re doing in Victory, and why. Just how much is Alice willing to lose to expose what’s really going on in this paradise?”
