Olivia Wilde showed her impressive directorial chops with the comedic romp Booksmart, but how’s she gonna be with suspense? By the looks of this trailer, not too shabby. Synopsis!
Alice (Florence Pugh) and Jack (Harry Styles) are lucky to be living in Victory, the experimental company town housing the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families. Life is perfect, with every resident’s needs met by the company. All they ask in return is 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 what they’re doing in Victory, and why. Just how much is Alice willing to lose to expose what’s really going on in paradise?
I’m getting serious Stepford Wives and Get Out “beware the too good to be true” vibes with this one. Spooky! Don’t Worry Darling hits theaters September 23, 2022.
