With the release date for Don’t Worry, Darling set for this month, fans won’t have to wait long to see this year’s most anticipated picture.
It’s the film that creatively – and romantically – brought Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde together. So it’s no wonder that there’s a lot of excitement about the imminent release of Don’t Worry Darling. Mr. Styles, the Love on Tour showman, is joined by a slew of other Hollywood talent in bringing to life a story that seems aesthetically ideal on the surface. But if you peel the surface, you’ll find something more terrible in store.
Don’t worry, Darling will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September, alongside the upcoming Netflix treat White Noise, starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig.
Don’t Worry Darling: Release date
Don’t worry, Darling will be released in UK and North American theatres on September 23, 2022. Olivia Wilde, the film’s director, and the cast member was the first to announce the release date in September 2021 with an Instagram post titled simply: “In cinemas only. 9 • 23 • 22.”
The first showing of Don’t Worry Darling at the Venice Film Festival is being offered to a select few in the film industry. The film’s official global premiere will take place at the famous film festival on Monday, September 5th, with actors Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, and Olivia Wilde all scheduled to walk the red carpet.
Regular Joes will have to wait until September for the release date. In honor of the approaching release, the official Don’t Worry Darling Instagram account released a teaser on August 23, informing fans of the one-month wait.
The film has been in the works for a long time, with original production beginning in September 2020 but being interrupted owing to a pandemic. In October 2020, a cast member tested positive for coronavirus, causing filming to be halted. Filming was later resumed and completed in February 2021.

Plot and Storyline for Don’t Worry Darling
Don’t worry, Darling is a suspenseful thriller set in 1950s America. It follows Alice (Florence Pugh) and her husband Jack (Harry Styles) as they make a life for themselves in suburbia. However, in a world where the image is everything, the picturesque utopian community experiment they’ve joined doesn’t appear to be all it’s built up to be. Alice soon finds herself having terrifying visions that threaten to upheave everything.

“A 1950s housewife (Pugh) living with her husband (Styles) in a utopian experimental society begins to wonder that his dazzling firm may be harboring terrible truths,” according to the official synopsis.
Don’t Worry Darling: Cast
Don’t be concerned. Darling marks the debut of popstar Harry Styles as a leading man. The 28-year-old, who previously appeared in the film Dunkirk, took over the main part when actor Shia LaBeouf backed out or was apparently sacked due to creative disputes.
“I believe the tale as a whole drew me to the part of Jack,” Styles said in an email from Toronto, where he was performing on his Love On Tour. “It felt like a chance to play someone really complicated, stuck between love and obsession.” There were always two sides to each character to explore. It’s nice to portray someone who makes you feel like you’re working out the entire time.”

What is the recommended age range for Don’t Worry Darling?

Other trailers for Don’t Worry Darling, such as the 3 minute 26 second one published in August, were rated 15 for mature audiences. This indicates that only individuals aged 15 and up are permitted to see the film in theatres.
