Trailer: Don’t Worry Darling – Littyscenes
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?
Shia Lebeouf was originally tapped to play the part that later went to Harry Styles so I hope the latter’s prowess is sufficient to make up for that deficit because Lebeouf is one intense actor. And who else noticed this trailer sounds and builds up like that of ‘Joker’s?’ Especially towards the end as the music swells. That was an iconic assembly of footage so I remember it by heart.
In any event, I’m looking forward to this. SEPTEMBER 23 in theaters is not too far off now.
