Set to be released by in September 2022, it sees Styles and Pugh play a married couple, the latter of whom grows suspicious of her husband's behaviour as she witnesses violent acts.

The mid-century utopian drama is bound to be full of nail-biting suspense, and we're here for it.

Here's everything you need to know about Don't Worry Darling:

What's the plot of Don't Worry Darling?

The story revolves around a married couple in the 1950s. Alice (Pugh) is a 1950s housewife living with her husband Jack (Styles), who is employed by a mysterious operation called Victory Project, which is expected to change the world.

While women are told to stay indoors, Alice becomes suspicious as she starts to witness violent acts committed by her spouse, and contemplates the disturbing secrets her husband's company might be keeping.

Styles' character is part of the puzzling operation, along with Wonder Woman 1984's Chris Pine and The Hustle's Timothy Simons, who are not keen on disclosing their actual activities at work to their wives.

As Pugh's character starts to probe, her marriage and life becomes more dangerous.

While on stage at a CinemaCon event in Las Vegas on Tuesday to discuss the thriller, director Olivia Wilde said, as per The Times, that the film is comparable to 'Inception, The Matrix, Truman Show. It’s my love letter to the movies that pushed boundaries of ambition'.

She later asked the audience: 'Imagine a life where you could have anything you ever wanted, not just the tangible things … but also the things that really matter — true love with the perfect partner, real trusted friendships.

'What would it take for you to give up that perfect life? What are you willing to sacrifice to do what’s right?

'Are you willing to dismantle the system that is designed to serve you?'

Who stars in Don't Worry Darling?

Harry Styles and Florence Pugh star as married couple Alice and Jack, plus Humans actor Gemma Chan makes an appearance. Styles' real-life girlfriend Olivia Wilde directed the thriller, but she features in it too, as a character called Mary.

Other stars include Chris Pine, Timothy Simons and Big Little Lies' Douglas Smith.

When is Don't Worry Darling being released?

The thriller, which is being filmed in the US, is due to be released in the UK on September 23, 2022.

What have the cast of Don't Worry Darling said about the film?

Styles told Capital FM's Roman Kemp that he wouldn't feel comfortable watching Don't Worry Darling with his mum Anne Twist.

After Kemp asked Styles if he's able to 'safely' watch, he replied saying he doesn't know if you can watch it with your parents.

The singer also addressed a question about how he and Pugh simulated sex during the more romantic scenes, after Kemp heard rumours that a deflated netball is involved.

Styles explained: 'I personally had no experience with a netball, I think it depends very much on who you're working with and what the situation is, all I can say from my own experience is that I was very lucky to have a very trusting relationship within the people we were working with and that kind of came first...

'So it was all discussed and all of it was very, kind of, "Ok above the filming, above anything that is happening, it's the cameras, it's me and you, we're doing his together, and we trust each other and if at any point, you know..."

'We can stop whenever and all that kind of stuff. I'd never done that before on camera at least I don't think! '

What happened when Wilde was promoting Don't Worry Darling at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas?

Wilde took to the stage at the cinematic convention to present her film. While speaking to the audience, she was handed a brown envelope marked 'personal and confidential', which, according to The Times, contained legal papers concerning the custody of Wilde's children, Otis, eight and Daisy, five, that she shares with actor Jason Sudeikis.

Upon receiving the envelope, Wilde said: 'This is for me, right?

'Very mysterious. I’m going to open it now.'

Having seen the content, she was understood to have asked: 'Is this a script?... OK, got it. Thank you.'
