Don’t Worry Darling, has finally received a streaming date for Olivia Wilde’s contentious sophomore movie. The suspenseful drama, which premieres on HBO Max on November 7, is set in a startlingly pristine 1950s neighbourhood where Alice (Florence Pugh) and Jack (Harry Styles) assume their respective roles as the model married pair. Every morning, Jack and the other men rush out to work, leaving Alice behind to clean the entire house, prepare extravagant dinners, and make herself a sight to behold in anticipation of Jack’s return. When Alice discovers Victory doesn’t add up, their fantasy existence quickly starts to fall apart.
A number of cast-related scandals and the movie’s blatant investigation of gender power dynamics have caused quite a stir in the media over the past several months. Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, Nick Kroll, and KiKi Layne are among the star-studded cast members of the movie. All press is good press, as the saying goes, and this was demonstrated by the box office results. The movie’s expected global box office take after a second consistent weekend is close to $85 million.
After decades of success as a stand-alone musician and as a former member of the hugely popular boyband One Direction, Styles makes his acting debut in Don’t Worry Darling. Styles made his debut on the big screen in a supporting part in Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan’s 2017 war drama. The film arrives before the singer of “Late Night Talking” will perform in My Policeman.
Styles plays Constable Tom Burgess in the Michael Grandage-directed movie with Emma Corrin and David Dawson. On November 7, HBO Max debuts Don’t Worry Darling. Don’t Worry Darling will be accessible on November 29 via streaming as well as 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
